WOBURN, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man has been indicted on charges he crashed his SUV through the front window of a busy pizza restaurant in March, killing two people and injuring several others.

Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan said Wednesday a grand jury indicted 55-year-old Bradford Casler, of Newton, on two counts of motor vehicle homicide and one count of operating a motor vehicle to endanger. It’s unclear whether Casler has a lawyer.

The March 1 crash at Sweet Tomatoes Restaurant in Newton, a suburb of Boston, killed 32-year-old Gregory Morin, of Newton, and 57-year-old Eleanor Miele, of Watertown. Seven people, including Casler, were injured and taken to area hospitals.

Prosecutors say Casler drove the SUV through an intersection and collided with several cars before crashing through the front of the restaurant.
