FAIRVIEW PARK, OH (WOIO) - A driver whose blood alcohol content was three times the legal limit when he struck a tow truck operator in mid-March has been indicted on eight charges stemming from the incident.
Roy E. Hollingsworth, 35, was indicted Thursday on two counts of aggravated vehicular assault, four counts of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and two counts of drug possession, according to court records.
Police said Hollingsworth was driving 66 mph in a 35 mph zone when he hit the tow truck, causing it to fall on top of 53-year-old Ronald Urbanksy.
Urbanksy was in the process of towing a vehicle that was impounded after an unrelated traffic stop.
The impact of the crash caused the tow truck to fall on top of him, pinning him underneath. The injury to Urbanksy’s lower leg was so severe that it had to be amputated.
Hollingsworth’s arraigned is scheduled for May 9.
