The Delaware County Prosecutor’s Office has filed a Bill of Information against 37-yearold David A. Crawford of Upper Arlington.
A Bill of Information is an official filing of charges without a grand jury presentation. A Bill of Information was filed in this case because parties agreed to the charge before
having to go before a grand jury.
Three counts of aggravated vehicular assault – all third-degree felonies are outlined in the Bill. A separate Bill of Information has been filed with one count of OVI – a firstdegree misdemeanor.
Charges come after law enforcement responded to a single vehicle injury crash on Muirfield Court in Dublin on the evening of June 1, 2018.
“A BMW left the roadway and was found heavily damaged resting in the ditch of a residential neighborhood,” said Delaware County Prosecutor Carol O’Brien. “Two male passengers were in the grass beside the vehicle, while another male passenger was trapped in the backseat.”
The driver, David Crawford, was outside the vehicle and refused medical treatment. He was observed to have glassy eyes, slurred speech, and there was an odor of alcohol
about his person.
“Mr. Crawford was arrested at the scene,” O’Brien said. “His passengers were transported to Riverside Medical Center with serious injuries, including a broken leg, broken ribs, head lacerations, and a collapsed lung.”
An arraignment and change of plea hearing has been set for Crawford this Thursday,
January 19, 2018 at 3 p.m.
