Ohio driver charged in fatal wedding-day crash

Ohio driver charged in fatal wedding-day crash

GALION, Ohio (AP) — The double-fatal crash that killed an Ohio groom hours after his wedding has led to charges against the friend who was driving.

Wyandot County court records show 34-year-old Timothy Tebbe of Nevada, Ohio, was indicted this week on six charges, including aggravated vehicular homicide and vehicular assault. No attorney is listed for him.

Authorities say Tebbe was seriously hurt in the Oct. 12 crash that killed 27-year-old Andrew Bloomfield of Galion and a female friend and injured the bride, Ruth Driskill.

She tells WBNS-TV she understands the charges but doesn't want Tebbe in prison and thinks he's suffered enough with the loss of two friends.

The sheriff says investigators believe the vehicle's speed was near 100 mph. The bride disagrees and says the vehicle wasn't traveling that fast.
