True bill of indictmentView
Johnthony Walker, the 24-year-old bus driver charged in connection with the deadly Woodmore accident, has been indicted on six counts of vehicular homicide, records show.
Grand jurors also charged Walker with four counts of reckless aggravated assault, one count of reckless endangerment, one count of reckless driving, and one count of use of portable electronic device by school bus driver, records show.
He will be arraigned March 24 before Criminal Court Judge Don Poole.
Authorities say Walker was speeding on Talley Road when he swerved into a tree with 37 Woodmore Elementary students onboard, killing six children and injuring several more.
A Sessions Court judge said in December enough evidence existed to send Walker to the grand jury, which meets in secret.
Walker has been in Hamilton County Jail since the crash and faces about dozen lawsuits in Circuit Court.
