A Loudonville man charged in connection with a fatal accident that claimed the life of Jared Reid, 20, of Mansfield, has accepted a plea agreement in the case.
 

Tyler Bender, 22, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Ashland County Common Pleas Court to aggravated vehicular homicide, OVI and two counts of assault.
 

The assault charges involve two other passengers who were injured in Bender's vehicle at the time of the accident.
The assault and OVI are misdemeanor charges.

The fatal accident occurred April 3 on Ashland County Road 775. Bender was driving under the influence when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed.

Reid was thrown from the vehicle, landed in the road and was struck by a car traveling north on County Road 775. 
Bender and two other passengers were seriously injured in the crash.
 

As part of the plea agreement, the state dismissed alternative counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and OVI listed in the original indictment and a separate bill of information.

Bender will be sentenced on March 15. He could be sentenced to two to eight years in prison. The sentence also carries a mandatory driver's license suspension.

Bender remains free on bond pending sentencing.
