A Milford Township teen is under arrest, and his parents also face charges, in connection with a deadly motorcycle crash in Milford Township earlier this month.
17 year old Andrew Hensley was taken into custody this morning and charged with Delinquency by Reason of Vehicular Homicide, Failure to Yield from a Stop Sign, and Driving Under Suspension. He was taken to the Butler County Juvenile Detention Center. His parents, Larry Hensley and Joni Hensley, have both been charged with Wrongful Entrustment of a Motor Vehicle, and were issued citations.
The crash happened on May 2nd at the intersection of State Route 177 and Harris Road in Milford Township. Deputies say 25 year old Donald Herbst was driving his Harley southbound on State Route 177 around 7 a.m. that day when a pickup, driven by Hensley, turned from Harris Road onto 177 and hit Herbst.
Herbst, who was reportedly wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, was transported by Air Care to University Hospital in Cincinnati. He died about 12 hours later.
Hensley was not injured.
