College student due in court after being charged in deadly February crash

LUCAS COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A college student will be in court this morning after prosecutors say he started a five-car crash that killed a Toledo woman.

Brian Rosenburg, 22, will be formally charged with two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide today in the Lucas County Common Pleas Court..  Police say he was driving under the influence of alcohol and speeding during the crash that killed 47-year-old Judith Crawford.

If convicted of these charges, Rosenburg could spend around 8-years in prison.

Toledo police say Rosenburg was driving a Saab SUV northbound on Byrne and struck the rear of a Dodge Neon, operated by Crawford, who had been stopped at a red light.

The force of the impact propelled a Lexus SUV, driven by Harriet Grier, 64, across the intersection, striking a Ford Fiesta, operated by Stephen Feczer, 20, who had been westbound on Dorr at the time.

Following the initial crash, Rosenburg struck a Ford pickup truck, operated by Paul Malak, 53, who had also been waiting at the light in the adjacent lane.

Crawford, Grier and Rosenburg were taken to the hospital.

Witnesses told police Rosenburg was traveling at a high rate of speed prior to the crash. Investigation confirmed alcohol was a factor in the crash.
