Hudson -- A 47-year-old Hudson man was charged with aggravated vehicular homicide Oct. 13 after police say the SUV he was driving Oct. 12 collided with a motorcycle driven by an 18-year-old man.
According to police, Philip Wiese, 47, was eastbound on state Route 303 in a full-size SUV shortly after 11:30 p.m. when he attempted to make a left turn onto St. Regis Boulevard.
The SUV collided with a westbound motorcycle driven by 18-year-old Scott Graber, of Ravenna Street, according to police.
Police said Mr. Graber, who was wearing a helmet, was thrown from the 1999 Suzuki motorcycle. Mr. Graber was transported to Akron City Hospital where he died Oct. 13.
Wiese allegedly "smelled of an alcoholic beverage and performed poorly on the field sobriety tests," according to police. Wiese was originally charged with OVI and aggravated vehicular assault Oct. 12. However, after Mr. Graber's death, the charges were changed to aggravated vehicular homicide.
