WILMINGTON — A Greenfield resident was found guilty of vehicular homicide.

Chelsy Mick, 24, was found guilty after entering a no contest plea on March 17 in Clinton County Municipal Court.

The charge stemmed from a two-vehicle crash on State Route 72 between Carter and Sabina Roads in October. The crash resulted in the death of 41-year-old Jeffrey Tisdale of Hillsboro, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to Wilmington State Highway Patrol, Mick was driving southbound on SR 72 when her vehicle traveled left of center and struck Tisdale’s vehicle.

Mick was transported to the James Medical Center with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.

The state patrol indicated both were wearing seat belts, and drugs and/or alcohol were not suspected to be involved.

The sentencing has been stayed until further notice.
