WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - A driver has been indicted on charges of aggravated vehicular homicide in the June crash that killed a recent high school grad.

A person who called 911 after the crash claimed Ondrek was driving “70 or 60[mph]” when he hit Waesp’s car.

The Class of 2022 grad was an expecting father, according to a Facebook post from Mason City Schools.
