The woman who struck and killed two Coventry Middle School students and seriously injured a third while driving on South Main Street has been indicted on several felony charges.
A grand jury Wednesday indicted Natasha Boggs, 24, of Weaver Street in New Franklin, on two counts of involuntary manslaughter, two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one count of tampering with evidence, all third-degree felonies, and one count of vehicular assault, a fourth-degree felony. She also was indicted on two misdemeanor counts of vehicular homicide, first-degree felonies; one count of negligent assault and one count of marked lanes violations, both third-degree felonies; and one count of texting while driving, a minor misdemeanor.
On May 28, Boggs was driving north on South Main Street in Coventry Township when she drove over the marked lane on the side of the road, striking and killing 14-year-old Taylor Galloway and 14-year-old Amber Thoma. A 15-year-old boy was also struck and hospitalized with serious injuries. A fourth boy was with the group but was uninjured.
An investigation by Summit County Sheriff's Department determined that Boggs was texting at the time of the crash.
Boggs is scheduled to be arraigned in Summit County Common Pleas Court at 8 a.m. Aug. 9.
