PHOENIX (AP) - A man has been indicted in a freeway crash last year that killed a passenger in his car and injured an Arizona Department of Public Safety worker.

Court records show 36-year-old Joaquin Daniel Ballesteros-Carpio was indicted on charges of manslaughter, aggravated assault, possession or use of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Authorities say Ballesteros-Carpio was found with a drug pipe in his front pocket at the scene of the Oct. 25 crash in Gilbert.

They say Ballesteros-Carpio was driving on the Santan Freeway when he and suddenly swerved and hit a DPS service vehicle parked on the shoulder.

Authorities say Ballesteros-Carpio was driving on a suspended license at the time. He needed to be extricated from his car and a passenger was pronounced dead at the scene.
