BALTIMORE (AP) - The operator of a boat that crashed near the Key Bridge this summer, killing two women, has been indicted by a grand jury.

An indictment unsealed last week shows that 56-year-old Timothy Jay Wilson faces several charges including homicide and manslaughter by vessel and drunken boating charges.

Police say 40-year-old Windy Lawson and 45-year-old Kimberly Ervin were killed July 26 after being ejected from their seats into the water. Six others were injured in the crash.

An investigation by Maryland Natural Resources Police found that the crash followed a night of drinking that began when Wilson met the passengers at a Dundalk restaurant.

Authorities say the boat slammed into one of the concrete structures protecting the bridge.

It isn’t clear whether Wilson has an attorney.
