BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (WCMH) — A 32-year-old woman has now been charged just a few weeks after a head-on crash in Logan County where a 17-year-old girl was killed.

On Tuesday morning, charges were filed in Logan County Common Pleas Court for the indictment of Lakeview’s Briana Mohler in the death of Chloe Hodge in the Jan. 25 crash. Mohler faces charges of aggravated vehicular homicide, involuntary manslaughter, operating a vehicle under the influence, and driving under suspension.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the crash occurred before 10 a.m. on Jan. 25 at County Road 130 and Township Road 56 in McArthur Township. Authorities said Hodge, a student in the Indian Lake Local school district, was driving a Honda south on C.R. 130 when she was hit head-on by a Ford, driven by Mohler, that traveled left of the center from the northbound lane.

Hodge was pronounced dead as a result of serious injuries from the crash while Mohler was taken to Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus in stable condition.

Hodge was a junior at Indian Lake High School and was part of the Health Careers Academy program at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center. “Chloe was a bright light who always wanted to help people,” said the school district in a statement. “She was smart, funny, and always quick to lend a hand. Chloe continues to help others as an organ and tissue donor.”

Mohler’s first court appearance has yet to be released. “It’s always tragic. This is tragic for all families involved,” said Logan County Sheriff Randall Dodds after the crash. “This probably is magnified more because we were familiar with the at-fault driver and her history. So why was she even driving?”
