Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - A Monroe County grand jury has indicted a Henrietta man on vehicular manslaughter and DWI charges for a crash that killed a mother of two back in July.

Louie Restivo, 47, was indicted Tuesday on two counts of vehicular manslaughter 1st, DWI and DWI with a BAC of .08 or higher.

The vehicular manslaughter count is due to Restvio's DWAI conviction in 2008.

On July 17, 26-year-old Hannah Kline was killed when Restivo turned in front of a dump truck in Mendon, causing the dump truck to crash into her vehicle.

The crash happened on Boughton Hill Road and Hunt Club Road shortly before 8 a.m. when Louie Restivo turned his pickup truck in front of a dump truck. Restivo stopped in the road before driving into a construction area in the grass.

Aaron Bassage, the dump truck driver, tried to stop as Restivo turned in front of him, but crashed into Kline's car, which was driving behind Restivo's pickup truck.

Kline left behind two young daughters, ages three and six.

Bassage was ticketed for having brakes out of service, operating out of class, and operating out of restrictions.
