Boardman driver charged in deadly crash back in jail

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Bond has been revoked for a Boardman man who is now in the Mahoning County jail where he awaits trial for a crash that claimed the life of an elderly North Jackson woman.

Judge Scott Krichbaum issued a warrant for the arrest of 46-year-old Michael Romigh after Canfield police say they caught him speeding along Main Street one day after Christmas.

According to a police report, Romigh was carrying a syringe and a marijuana vaporizer at the time of the arrest.

Romigh was cited for speeding and charged with possessing drug instruments.

At the time Canfield Police pulled him over, Romigh had been free on bond following an indictment on one charge each of vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter.

That indictment stemmed from a June 22 incident where investigators say Romigh's car failed to yield for a pickup truck at Blott Road and Rosemont Road in Jackson Township.

The pickup truck flipped over, killing the driver, 79-year-old Rachel Wood of North Jackson.

Prosecutors say Romigh was driving on a suspended license at the time of the crash.

Romigh's trial for the fatal crash is scheduled to begin Monday.
