Nearly a year after the accident, a grand jury has indicted a Florida truck driver in a crash that severely injured a Tennessee state trooper.

Eric D. Lewis is charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, reckless driving and failure to drive in a single lane.

Lewis admitted to police that he fell asleep at the wheel, before his tractor-trailer slammed into the back of Sergeant Lowell Russell's cruiser.

The fiery crash happened on March 13th, 2012.  Russell nearly died.

A passing ambulance crew and Lewis pulled Russell from the burning car.

Lewis was driving for FHS Trucking, based in Orlando.
