The driver involved in a fatal Grand Parkway crash last December has been indicted, according to police.
Based on the investigation, a pick up truck was traveling along the westbound lanes of Highway 99 FM Road 2920 when it suddenly crossed the center median, went airborne, and landed on the other side of the highway. The vehicle then struck several vehicles, leaving twisted metal and shattered glasses on the road. The impact of the collision killed two people in the process. They were identified as Michael Brown and Linda Fuggiti. They are driving a silver Chevy crossover and Lexus respectively.
The driver was identified as 54-year-old Charles Glaze. He is facing two counts of manslaughter which carry a total punishment of up to 40 years in prison if he’s convicted.
Our prayers and thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased victims. We understand that losing a loved one could be devastating.
