Texas Tech student was indicted on a charge of intoxication manslaughter in connection with a deadly wreck last month.
Investigators said 19-year-old Jason Chad White was driving at a high rate of speed when he smashed into several other vehicles at Avenue S and Glenna Goodacre Boulevard on Dec. 6.
Megan Rough, 20, was ejected from one of the cars that was hit. Even though police said she was wearing a seat belt, she died from her injuries. Police reported White's blood alcohol content was .20.

The Lubbock grand jury indicted two men for murder in connection with a shooting on Dec. 13.
Police had to work a bit to find the crime scene because the victim, 34-year-old Mark Morris, was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle. He died later. Police believe the confrontation started in the 2900 block of East Colgate. Zacory Price, 17, and 17-year-old Nathan Sproles were each indicted on a murder charge. A third suspect in custody in the case is a juvenile, whose name is not being released.

Grand jurors indicted the cousin of the victim of a deadly Dec. 15 assault on a murder charge.
Danny Ray Martinez, 23, accused of striking 34-year-old Eddie Moreno in the head during an altercation at the Gates Apartments in the 5,000 block of Avenue W.
Moreno died later at the hospital.

The driver accused of hitting a patrol car that led to a close call for a police officer in September was indicted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Police said 23-year-old Peter Aaron Keltz was headed east in the 3900 block of 19th Street at an unsafe speed.
Keltz was accused of losing control and striking a marked police car stopped in the left lane to assist with an accident. The LPD dashcam video showed the police car crossing the center median, towards officer Philip Standefer and 19-year-old Sarah Beatty. The officer pushed the woman to safety, but was injured in the process.
And two suspects were indicted in connection with a Dec. 29 shooting that critically injured a man.
Patrick Corbin, 31, and 33-year-old Kenneth Wall are accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Officers found the victim, 32-year-old Austin Voss, with two men in a vehicle parked at a convenience store at Marsha Sharp Freeway and University Avenue. Voss was transported to the hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries. Police said they later found evidence that the shooting may have happened at a home in the 2400 block of 25th Street. According to police reports, Voss told investigators the two suspects hit him with a hammer, and one shot him with a shotgun.
