SNOW HILL, Md.- A Worcester County grand jury has handed down a manslaughter indictment against a 19-year-old man accused of killing his passenger in a September drunken driving crash, authorities said.

  • Criminally negligent manslaughter
  • Negligent manslaughter by automobile while under the influence of alcohol             
  • Homicide by automobile while impaired by alcohol
  • Reckless driving
  • Negligent driving                                                                                                                                            

According to the Sheriff's Office, Gingrich was the driver of a vehicle involved in a single-vehicle crash in Pocomoke City on Sept. 10.  Killed in the crash was the passenger, 21-year-old Logan Moloy, of Salisbury, Md.
