A Gainesville man accused of causing a fatal multicar wreck while under the influence of methamphetamine was indicted on felony vehicular homicide charges this week.

A Hall County grand jury returned a seven-count indictment Thursday against Andrew Jason Grier, according to court records.

Other charges include serious injury by vehicle, possession of methamphetamine, DUI and reckless driving.

Grier, 33, is charged with causing the death of 16-year-old Alicia Mote during an Aug. 18 wreck on Browns Bridge Road. Mote was a passenger in a Ford Escort driven by her father, James Mote, 39.

Authorities said Grier, driving a 2009 F-150, crossed the center line and struck Mote's car.

James Mote sustained multiple fractures to his pelvis during the crash, according to the indictment.

Two other cars also were involved in the crash.

The indictment accuses Grier of "traveling at a high rate of speed, passing on a double yellow line, changing lanes erratically and following other vehicles too closely," while under the influence of methamphetamine.

Grier spent nine days in the Hall County Jail before posting a $38,000 property bond on Sept. 9.

No arraignment date has been set.
