CINCINNATI — A man charged in a deadly Crosby Township crash faced a judge about eight months after deputies say he drove off the road and struck a tree. A passenger in his truck died.

David Loveless, 41, is charged with vehicular manslaughter. He was driving with a suspended license at the time of the crash, according to court records.

Deputies said Loveless was driving on New Haven Road on Sept. 19, 2018 when he failed to follow a curve in the road and went down an embankment. James Warr, 46, was killed.

Driving under suspension raised the level of the offense to a misdemeanor of the first degree, according to court records.

His attorney said the crash was “a tragic accident” and that Loveless has not been driving since.

Loveless was released on his own recognizance. The judge ordered him not to drive as part of his bond.
