Man indicted in Bellevue fatality
A man who allegedly caused a fatal downtown Bellevue accident in September has been indicted on several charges in connection to the crash.
Morgan E. Jevec, 24, of Massillon, was indicted Friday on six counts of aggravated vehicular assault, one count of failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer and two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide, according to court documents from the Huron County Clerk of Courts.
The case was filed Monday in Huron County Court of Common Pleas.
The crash, which occurred on US 20 in Bellevue Sept. 17, killed 36-year-old Tracy Albright of Bellevue.
Jevec’s vehicle struck the rear of Albright’s vehicle which was stopped at the intersection of US 20 and North Sandusky Street. Both vehicles then caught fire. A third vehicle also was struck in the accident. That driver was treated at the scene.
Albright was pronounced dead at the scene and three passengers in Jevec’s vehicle were injured. Jevec and his three passengers were transported to Toledo hospitals.
Just before the crash, Jevec reportedly had failed to comply with the order or signal of a police officer who attempted to stop his vehicle.
According to court documents, Jevec appeared in court Monday, where he pleaded not guilty to the charges. Court documents also show a personal recognizance bond was filed.
