A Huron County grand jury has charged a Massillon man accused of causing a fatal crash in downtown Bellevue.

24-year-old Morgan Jevec is now in the Huron County Jail, and is facing six counts of aggravated vehicular assault, two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide, and a single count of failing to comply with the order of a police officer. Those charges are tied to the September 17th crash that killed 36-year-old Tracy Albright of Bellevue. Authorities believe Jevec was traveling at a high rate of speed, when he slammed into the back of Albright’s stopped SUV. Both vehicles burst into flames, before a third car was hit. Albright was pronounced dead at the scene. Jevec and three passengers suffered serious injuries.
