22-year-old Brian Rosenburg appeared before Judge Gary Cook in Toledo Common Pleas Court Wednesday morning to face the charges. Police say the college student was traveling northbound on Byrne Road near Dorr Street when his SUV rear-ended 47-year-old Judith Crawford's Dodge Neon.
The impact of that collision sent Crawford's vehicle, which had been stopped at a red light prior to the initial crash, into the back of 64-year-old Harriet Grier's Lexus SUV. Grier had also stopped at the red light, before the crash, but the impact from Crawford's vehicle sent her car into the intersection.
20-year-old Stephen Feczer was traveling westbound on Dorr when Grier's vehicle then collided with his car.
Following the initial crash, Rosenburg's SUV also collided with 53-year-old Paul Malak's pick up truck.
Emergency crews removed Crawford from her vehicle using the Jaws of Life. She died Friday, March 7 as a result of injuries sustained in the February 14 crash.
Rosenburg, a student at the University of Toledo, was under the influence of alcohol and driving at a high rate of speed at the time of the crash, according to police.
A pre-trial date has been set for April 23, 2014. Rosenburg is free on bond to return home to Rome, Ohio, but must wear an electronic monitoring device. His driver's license has been surrendered and he has been ordered to undergo daily substance abuse treatment.
