RICHMOND COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW) -- John Barron Sr., 54, was indicted on a second degree vehicular homicide charge after his son was killed in a crash.

He was also indicted on two additional charges: violating the open container law and operating an unsafe vehicle.

In August, deputies responded to a single vehicle accident on Hephzibah-McBean Road.

When authorities arrived at the scene they say 22-year-old John Barron Jr. had fallen outside of the vehicle which was operated by his father, Barron Sr.

Both were transported to the hospital where Barron Jr. was pronounced dead.
