CINCINNATI — Charges have been filed against the man who was driving a vehicle when it crashed on I-75, killing three people and shutting down I-75 for hours on January 24, according to court documents.

Brandon Davis, 40, has been indicted on six charges of aggravated vehicular homicide, one count of vehicular assault and one count of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

He is accused of causing the deaths of Alice Richardson, 38, Natasha Moore, 38 and Erica Easley, 39, who were all killed in the crash. He's also accused of causing serious physical harm to a fourth woman, who was injured in the crash.

On the night of the crash, police said Davis struck the impact attenuator that separates I-75 from I-74 at the split.

Davis was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center the night of the crash.

He is not listed as an inmate in the Hamilton County Justice Center and no court date has yet been set for him.
