A Licking County grand jury indicted a Columbus man on Wednesday on two counts of vehicular homicide stemming from a June crash near Newark.
On the afternoon of his 29th birthday, Anthany J. Krebs rear-ended a motorcycle driven by Randle D. O’Bryan of Pataskala traveling east on Rt. 16 near the Cherry Valley Road intersection, according to a State Highway Patrol report. O’Bryan, 44, died at Licking Memorial Hospital.
Krebs, of Rover Lane on the East Side, was indicted on two counts of vehicular homicide — one count for being under the influence, a second-degree felony, and one count for recklessness, a third-degree felony, said Assistant Licking County Prosecutor Paula Sawyer.
Krebs, who tested positive for both amphetamines and marijuana, was also indicted on one count of driving while intoxicated and a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana. His court date has not yet been set.
