Driver charged in crash that killed 16-year-oldPosted: Updated:
An Anderson Township man was indicted on Friday for two counts of vehicular homicide in a March accident that killed a 16-year-old boy.
Larry Molloy was driving under the influence in excess of 100 miles per hour when he crashed on Interstate 275, according to a release from Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office. Molloy's teenage son and his two friends were also in the Mercedes SUV when Molloy lost control and hit a guardrail near Kellogg Avenue.
Damion Henderson, 16, was ejected from the vehicle and later died at the hospital. Molloy, his son and the other passenger were not injured.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters announced the indictment on Friday and said the Aggravated Vehicular Homicide convictions could land Molloy eight years in prison.
Officials said Molloy threw cans of Mike's Hard Lemonade off the overpass following the crash, resulting in a tampering with evidence charge. He is also charged with child endangering.
This is Molloy's second child endangerment charge. He was previously convicted in May 2007 for getting behind wheel with his own child in the car. If convicted of all charges, he faces the possibility of 12 and a half years in prison.
