CINCINNATI (AP) — A woman charged with vehicular homicide in a crash that killed her 4-year-old grandson in southwest Ohio had her bond set at $1.1 million Monday.
Police said Geanna Mitchell, 43, was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs Saturday night in an SUV she allegedly took from a relative without permission. She was driving although her license was suspended, police said.
They reported she was driving recklessly, and crossed the center line on the Clay Wade Bailey bridge over the Ohio River between Cincinnati and Covington, Kentucky. Police said the SUV hit an oncoming minivan, then a barrier, rolled over and landed on its roof.
Mitchell, her 9-year-old daughter and the driver of the other vehicle sustained minor injuries. Mitchell's grandson, Logan Mitchell, was badly hurt and died at a Cincinnati hospital.
Mitchell sat in a wheelchair and covered her face with her hand during the hearing at which Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Bernie Bouchard set the bond on charges of aggravated vehicular homicide and theft.
A telephone listing for Mitchell's attorney was not accepting messages Monday.
