Augusta man indicted on vehicular homicide charge

An Augusta man whose vehicle struck a guardrail on the Interstate 20 bridge and plunged into the Augusta Canal has been indicted on vehicular homicide charges.

Euardo Gonzalez-Frias, 28, has been held in jail since he was released from the hospital following the May 21 crash which killed his passenger, 20-year-old Michael Botello.

According to the indictment returned by the Richmond County grand jury Tuesday, Gonzalez-Frias was driving under the influence at the time of the crash.
