BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Prosecutors have filed additional charges against a 28-year-old man accused of hitting and killing a Montana highway worker last year.

The Billings Gazette reports Ethan James Anderson has been charged with vehicular homicide while under the influence and six counts of criminal endangerment.

Authorities say 52-year-old Jeffrey Dyekman became pinned between Anderson’s truck and another truck inside a Billings construction zone in late October.

Charging documents allege that Anderson put additional workers in danger by “crashing into a marked construction zone, sideswiping multiple vehicles in the construction zone, continuing toward multiple construction workers.”

Anderson remains in the Yellowstone County Detention Facility on $50,000 bond.



Online jail documents do not indicate if Anderson has an attorney.
