An Ohio woman was indicted by a grand jury Wednesday for texting while driving, resulting in the deaths of two teenage girls.
Natasha Boggs, 24, was charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter, aggravated vehicular homicide and tampering with evidence in the killings of Amber Thoma, 14, and Taylor Galloway, 14, in the May 28 Coventry Township crash.
Boggs was in the middle of sending a text when she drifted into the roadside, hitting the two young girls and another 15-year-old who was seriously injured, according to reports.
The tampering with evidence charge stems from Boggs allegedly deleting text messages from her cell phone.
Boggs is being jailed on a $150,000 bond. Her arraignment is scheduled for Aug. 9 at Summit County Pleas Court.
