A Gallia County teen is facing charges following an accident that killed her passenger.
Brianna Byus, 19, of Gallipolis was charged with vehicular manslaughter on Wednesday, according to a criminal complaint filed in the Municipal Court of Gallipolis.
The Ohio State Highway responded to the accident that happened in February of this year on Fairview Road near Bidwell. Troopers said Byus lost control of her vehicle, hit a ditch, then overturned. Bethany Hackney was a passenger and died in the accident.
Troopers believe speed was a factor in the crash.
Byus' next court appearance is set for Nov. 1.
