YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A Bristolville man was in court Wednesday, answering to multiple charges of aggravated vehicular homicide and OVI.

Gregory Barnhart was indicted by a Mahoning County in connection to a September crash on Route 534 Milton Township that killed 68-year-old Howard Mounts, of New Middletown, and 34-year-old Bradley Ronci, of Youngstown.

Police say Barnhart went left of center, hitting Mounts’ vehicle.
