CINCINNATI -- A man now faces charges in a fatal Westwood crash that happened months ago, according to Julie Wilson, spokeswoman for the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office.
Zachary Hughes is charged in the death of his father, 47-year-old Kevin Hughes, who'd been riding in the passenger seat at the time of the crash.
Police said Hughes was driving northbound on Boudinot Avenue in a pickup truck on May 21 when he lost control and struck two parked cars near the intersection with Werk Road. The truck went airborne and crashed into a balcony. Kevin Hughes died at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
Hughes faces charges of aggravated vehicular homicide and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
