Man Indicted for I-69 Crash that Killed Highway Workers

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) _ A motorist whose pickup truck crashed into and killed two highway construction workers has been indicted on felony charges by a grand jury in Indianapolis.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry says the grand jury Thursday indicted Jordan Stafford of Fortville on two counts each of reckless operation in a highway work zone and failure to obey a traffic control device or flagman.

The May 2014 crash on Interstate 69 on the northeast side of Indianapolis killed 49-year-old Kenneth Duerson Jr. of Indianapolis and 24-year-old Coty Demoss of Noblesville. They were standing along the road and about to move an arrow board after overnight paving.

Curry said complex circumstances led to the decision to present the case to the grand jury.

Online court records didn't show an attorney for Stafford.
