CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A Pennsylvania teen accused of causing a multi-vehicle crash in New Jersey that killed a toddler last summer has been indicted.

Camden County prosecutors on Thursday said a grand jury has indicted 19-year-old Anders Opitz, of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, on charges of death by auto and assault by auto stemming from the June 29 crash on Route 73 in Winslow.

Authorities say Opitz was recklessly driving a pickup truck that sideswiped a van and then struck another vehicle stopped in traffic. The truck then rear-ended another car. That car was pushed into a sport utility vehicle, which was then pushed into another car.

A 19-month-old girl riding in one of the cars died. Opitz and six others were hurt.

It’s not known if he has a lawyer.
