By The Associated Press
AVON — A dump truck driver is facing multiple counts in connection with an 11-vehicle pileup outside Indianapolis that left two people dead and three injured.
Sixty-two-year-old Danny Lee Williams of Knightstown faces two counts each of reckless homicide, causing death when operating a vehicle while intoxicated, and causing serious bodily injury when operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He also faces one count of leaving the scene of an accident.
The pileup Tuesday afternoon on U.S. 36 in Avon killed husband and wife Gerald and Rhonda Legan of Danville, both 80.
Court documents quote witnesses as saying Williams drove erratically for several miles before the crash.
Williams remained jailed Wednesday afternoon on a $100,000 bond. A message seeking comment was left for his attorney.
