Ohio woman charged with vehicular homicide in crash that killed 4-year-old

CINCINNATI — The driver of a stolen SUV that flipped on a bridge between Cincinnati and northern Kentucky, killing a 4-year-old inside, has been charged with vehicular homicide and theft.

Police say 43-year-old Geanna Mitchell of Cincinnati stole the SUV from a relative Saturday night and was driving while impaired when she crossed the center line on the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge. Mitchell hit an oncoming car and a barrier, causing the SUV to flip on its top.

Mitchell, a 9-year-old girl in the SUV and the driver of the other vehicle sustained minor injuries.

But 4-year-old Logan Mitchell, also inside the SUV, was severely injured and died at a hospital.

It’s unclear how Geanna and Logan Mitchell are related.

Geanna Mitchell’s arraignment is Monday. It’s unclear whether she has an attorney.
