A February car crash in which one person suffered a broken arm led to the indictment this week of an Irvine man on four wanton endangerment charges.
Zachary C. Goosey, 20, was was traveling eastbound Feb. 18 on the Eastern Bypass when his vehicle crossed the median and struck a westbound vehicle stopped at a traffic light, according to a Richmond police news release.
One of the four passengers in the stopped vehicle suffered a broken arm.
The indictment states Goosey caused a “substantial danger of death or serious physical injury” to Travis W. Dickerson, Samantha Wheeler and two other people identified by their initials.
Goosey also was indicted on a charge of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol. The indictment states his blood-alcohol reading was .135, which is well above the legal limit of .08.
Goosey was released on bond nine days after his arrest, according to online Madison County Detention Center records. However, he was arrested again April 25 on a contempt of court charge. He remained in jail Thursday afternoon.
Goosey faces a maximum of 20 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
