A Juneau man has been indicted in connection with an accident almost a year ago that seriously injured a cousin.
Silver Maake, 23, was indicted by a grand jury on charges of assault in the third degree and assault in the first degree in connection with last January’s car crash on Egan Drive near the McNugget intersection.
The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro left the roadway and struck a light pole before coming to a rest on pedestrian bridge next to Egan Drive.
Both Maake his and passenger identified as Siaosi Maake, had to be extricated by firefighters before their transport to Bartlett Regional Hospital.
Investigators said at the time that speed appeared to be a factor in the crash.
