A grand jury indicted a man who they say is responsible for a deadly accident on Route 460 in September

Court documents show Ronald Quesenberry, III is facing five charges, including felony homicide, involuntary manslaughter, driving with a suspended license because of a DUI, reckless driving, and operating a motor vehicle without a certified ignition interlock system.

NewsChannel 3 investigated Quesenberry's past, and discovered he was convicted of driving while intoxicated back in 2011 in Virginia Beach.

He was also convicted in Portsmouth of driving with a revoked license.

And in the 460 crash, a grand jury says Quesenberry is the one to blame for Tommy Rush's death.

He was transporting grain a tractor trailer when he was killed during the crash. Six other people were also injured.

Rush's truck was one of the two tractor trailers involved, plus six other cars.

Days after the accident, NewsChannel 3 talked to Rush's step-daughter.

"Because he was such a good driver, I would never in a million years imagine that my dad would die in a trucking accident," said Jennifer Rush.

Police say they have been investigating the accident for months and were asking for witnesses to come forward.
