Woman Killed, Husband Injured In Coshocton Crash

Posted: Updated:

Investigators from the Coshocton County Sheriff's Office say a woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash in Coshocton Tuesday afternoon.

According to the sheriff's office, deputies responded to the intersection of North Whitewoman Street and Hill Road on a report of a two-vehicle crash at about 3 p.m.

The report states a 28-year-old Charles Miller, of Coshocton, was driving his 1996 Ford Explorer eastbound on Hill Street when his brakes allegedly failed. The Ford crossed into the lanes of traffic on North Whitewoman Street, striking a 2008 Toyota Prius that was stopped.

The Ford then struck a 1992 Mercury owned by the Coshocton County Airport before crashing into a brick pillar causing it to flip over onto the patio of the Warehouse Steak & Stein.

The driver of the Toyota, George Baldwin, 71, of Columbus, was transported to Coshocton County Memorial Hospital to bet treated. He was later flown to the Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University.

Baldwin's wife, Mary Baldwin, 68, was attempting to enter the passenger side door of the Toyota when the vehicle was struck. She was thrown across the sidewalk and into an iron gate. She sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by Coshocton County Coroner Robert Gwinn.

Miller and his 1-month-old daughter, who was also in the vehicle at the time of the crash, were transported to the Coshocton County Memorial Hospital where they were treated and released.

Miller was later arrested and taken to the Coshocton County jail on outstanding warrants from Guernsey County.

Deputies said that Miller had his license suspended in 2010.

Miller was charged with a fourth-degree felony of vehicular homicide.

The crash remains under investigation.
