LIMA — Dueling medical experts were called to the witness stand Monday in Allen County Common Pleas Court as part of a motion hearing requested by attorneys for a young Michigan man facing charges of aggravated vehicular homicide.
Zackery Brown, 22, of Waterford, Michigan, was indicted in January on two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide after a traffic accident on Nov. 10, 2016, that claimed the life of fellow Michigan resident Brenden Wale, a passenger in his vehicle. Both men were students at the University of Northwestern Ohio at the time of the fatal crash.
Brown reportedly told investigating officers he was the driver of the vehicle that crashed on state Route 115 some three miles south of the Putnam County line and also said he had consumed two beers in the hours leading up to the crash. Wale was found by patrol officers slumped over in the passenger seat of Brown’s car with no apparent vital signs. The reporting officer noted that Brown’s speech was slurred at the time he was found at the crash scene.
