Grand jury indicts Ponemah man in fatal crash on Red Lake Indian Reservation

RED LAKE, Minn. -- A grand jury has indicted a Ponemah, Minn., man in a crash that killed his passenger on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.

Prosecutors say 61-year-old Bruce Wilson Dow was drunk when his vehicle rolled over after he lost control of it last October. The passenger was thrown from the vehicle and later died at the hospital.

Dow was charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter.

The Bemidji Pioneer says Dow faces a maximum penalty of eight years in prison if convicted.
