JACKSON, Ohio (WSAZ) -- One week before Christmas, a 10-year-old girl was killed in an accident Ohio Highway Patrol said was caused by a driver under the influence of drugs. The accident happened on State Route 93 near milepost 10 at 10:00 Saturday morning.
Marsha McGinnis, 28 of Ironton, Angel McGinnis, 10, and Brice McGinnis, 5, were stopped behind another car on 93. According to Highway Patrol, another car rear-ended them -- forcing their car into the one ahead of them.
The McGinnis' car then went into the other lane, where it was struck by oncoming traffic. Marsha, Angel and Brice McGinnis were flown to Cabell-Huntington Hospital. 10-year-old Angel McGinnis was later pronounced dead. The driver that plowed into the McGinnis' car, 29-year-old Christopher Haines, was determined to be under the influence of drugs by the Highway Patrol. He was charged with Aggravated Vehicular Homicide and incarcerated in the Jackson County Correctional Facility.
The jail would not release his picture, because of an "ongoing investigation." All passengers in other cars involved only suffered minor injuries.
