A Harris County grand jury has indicted a driver who struck and killed a deputy constable on the Westpark Tollway, but not for the most serious charge. The grand jury no-billed Jim Legg on charges of negligent homicide, but they did indict him on a Class B misdemeanor of making an unsafe lane change, causing bodily injury.

In October, Legg's vehicle struck and killed Harris County Precinct 5 Deputy Constable Jason Norling along the Westpark Tollway.

Deputy Norling had been on the side of the road issuing a ticket when he was hit. Legg said he did not see the officer.
