The car slammed into the back end of a slow-moving school bus seriously injuring three passengers in the car. One of those passengers, Scott Collins, 16, remains hospitalized. No one on the bus was injured.
Zakhary was indicted on two counts of second degree assault, reckless endangerment, reckless driving charges and multiple traffic violations.
Zakhary will be arraigned at a later date. If convicted, he faces a maximum of seven years in prison.
