Macon man indicted in head-on fatal crash that also injured three

Bibb County grand jurors indicted a 28-year-old Macon man Tuesday on a vehicular homicide charge in connection with a May head-on collision that left one man dead and three other people injured.

Aaron Nathaniel Hendley also is charged with three counts of serious injury by vehicle and one count of driving under the influence, according to an indictment filed in Bibb County Superior Court.

Hendley's blood had an alcohol concentration equal to -- or more than -- the legal limit of .08 grams within three hours of the crash that killed 33-year-old Patrick Howard of Macon, according to the court filing.

A Range Rover driven by Hendley collided with a Chevrolet Suburban at about 3:30 a.m. May 25 on Columbus Road, near Ivey Drive behind Middle Georgia State College.

Authorities have said Howard was the front seat passenger in the Suburban. The driver of that vehicle and two children also were injured.

Hendley was taken to a local hospital. He has not been arrested.
