CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – A grand jury has returned two aggravated vehicular homicide charges against Jason Beard.
The truck knocked down an overhead highway sign.
The sign fell on the pickup truck being driven by 62-year-old Daniel Ripepi, who was killed in the crash.
Ripepi was a married father of six and vice president of A. Ripepi & Sons Funeral Home.
The indictment says Beard was operating recklessly and in a construction zone.
Beard is scheduled for arraignment March 23.
