Sheba Basabose, 35, was indicted by a Hamilton County grand jury on two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one count each of aggravated vehicular assault and vehicular assault.

Police say Basabose lost control of her car on McHenry on Oct. 8, crossed the center line, jumped the curb and hit a woman and her three small children who were walking on the sidewalk.  The car also hit a hydrant and ended up coming to a rest on the other side of the roadway.
