FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A Fort Worth officer under indictment for a 2012 collision that killed a motorist has been suspended from the police force for 30 days.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/1wy7ldi ) Christopher Bolling’s suspension took effect Friday.

Bolling in June was indicted by a Tarrant County grand jury on a single count of manslaughter. A trial date has not been scheduled.

Prosecutors contend he recklessly caused the death of 77-year-old Billie Addington by striking the man’s vehicle as Bolling traveled at a high speed at night without using his emergency lights or siren. Investigators say he was traveling 86 mph when the collision occurred in August 2012.

Authorities say Addington died from multiple injuries the following November.

Manslaughter is a second-degree felony punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison.
