Perrysburg driver indicted in fatal crash


A Perrysburg man accused of causing a wrong-way crash on I-75 last fall was indicted Tuesday by a Lucas County grand jury on four counts.

Christopher Jones was charged with one count of aggravated vehicular homicide and three counts of vehicular assault.

The indictment alleges that Jones recklessly caused the death of another, a third-degree felony.

He would face up to five years in prison if convicted.

The crash occurred Oct. 15 about 10:50 p.m. in the left north-bound lane of I-75 just south of the Phillips Avenue exit.

Matthew Davis, 37, died within seconds of the crash. He was a front-seat passenger in Dawn Lerma's vehicle when it was struck head on by a car traveling the wrong way.

Injured in the crash were Ms. Lerma, 40, Jones, 35, and Toledoans Bryan Davis, 9, Nikole Lerma, 15, and Lawrence Moser, 14.
