A Radcliff man, who police say was driving under the influence, was indicted Thursday by a Hardin County grand jury in a two-vehicle crash that claimed the life of a passenger in his vehicle.

Corey Phillips, 27, was directly indicted by a Hardin County grand jury for second-degree manslaughter in the March 29 death of Jennifer Turman, 33, of Amarillo, Texas.

Assistant Common­wealth’s Attorney Chris McCrary said Phillips was driving a car when he pulled out in front of a truck, which then struck the front passenger side where Turman was sitting.

According to Turman’s obituary, she is survived by her daughter, Aspen.

Second-degree manslaughter is a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison, if convicted.

Phillips also was indicted on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted, for creating “a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury” for the three other people in his vehicle when the crash happened, according to the indictment.

He also was indicted for first offense DUI and leaving the scene of an accident/failure to render aid or assistance, which also is a Class D felony.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Tuesday morning in Hardin Circuit Court and will be held on a $20,000 cash bond when arrested.
