A Georgia man was indicted Wednesday on murder charges in connection with the death of a Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus driver last month.

Prosecutors accuse Dominic Whilby of stealing a truck from the loading dock of a Meatpacking District hotel.

He allegedly ran two red lights and hit the bus on February 12.

Prosecutors say he had a blood alcohol content of .18 percent at the time of the accident.

Whilby is now facing multiple charges, including aggravated vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter.

The driver, William Pena, was killed in the crash.

Five others were hurt.

Pena was the first city bus driver to be killed in a crash while working in more than 14 years.
