A 21-year-old Miamisburg woman is charged with vehicular manslaughter in connection to an August crash in Jefferson Twp. that killed a Hamilton motorcyclist.

Ashley Nicole Eads was booked Wednesday night into the Montgomery County Jail for a misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter and a right of way violation, according to county municipal court records.

Eads was driving a work van around 10:20 a.m. Aug. 3 when she stopped on Infirmary Road for the stop sign at the intersection with state Route 4 and then entered the intersection, according to a crash report from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Lanny Hacker, 71, of Hamilton’s Lindenwald neighborhood, was riding his red 2000 Harley Davidson motorcycle northeast on state Route 4 when he collided with the work van that failed to yield the right of way, the crash report stated.

Hacker was flown by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital, where he later died of his injuries.

Eads is being held on a $5,000 bond, jail records show.
