Vehicular Assault as Defined by Ohio State Law

The Ohio Revised Code clearly states that inflicting grave physical harm to another individual—or their unborn—can happen in several ways:

  • Driving any motorized conveyance while impaired by substances or with negligence. A blood alcohol concentration of .08% is the legal maximum for operating vehicles.
  • Controlling, directing, or mismanaging any marine craft on Ohio’s waters, whilst intoxicated or with recklessness.
  • Engaging in hazardous aircraft operations, whether unauthorized, carelessly, in an intoxicated state, or through the deliberate disruption of navigational aids for aeronautic purposes.

Motorized conveyances are expansive in definition, encompassing not only road vehicles like cars and motorcycles but also snowmobiles, trains, boats, and planes.

A third-degree felony is on the card for vehicular assault charges tied to an OVI in Ohio, with penal consequences of up to five years and possibly a $10,000 penalty. Such a charge can also usher in a Class Three license suspension, which might see driving privileges revoked for a duration of two to ten years.

If vehicular assault stems from reckless vehicle operations, it gets categorized as a fourth-degree felony. This could lead to 18 months of incarceration, up to $5,000 in fines, and a possible five-year driving license suspension.
