Information from WYSH Radio
A Knoxville man has been indicted by an Anderson County grand jury on several charges connected to a December 2013 accident on Lewallen Bridge that killed one person and injured four others.
Kyle Houston Anthony, 22, was indicted last week on charges of vehicular homicide by intoxication and recklessness, drunken driving, driving under the influence of marijuana, three counts of reckless aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, speeding, and tampering with evidence. He is free on $150,000 bond and will be arraigned Aug. 1 in Criminal Court.
The wreck killed 40-year-old Angela Duncan Richardson, who was ejected through the rear window of the 2012 Chevrolet pickup driven by Anthony.
Police said that Anthony was trying to pass another vehicle on the bridge when he lost control of the pickup, crossed the over center line, and struck a northbound 1996 Honda Civic. The impact sent the Civic into a northbound 2011 Chevrolet SUV.
After the wreck, authorities said Anthony tossed a bottle of liquor off the bridge. While being questioned by investigators the following day, he reportedly admitted that he had consumed two 24-ounce cans of beer and part of a mixed drink shortly before the crash.
A second passenger in Anthony’s truck was injured as were three people in the Civic.
