The Poughkeepsie Journal reports ( ) that a grand jury in Dutchess County has indicted Carol Boeck of Red Hook on 17 counts.

Prosecutors say three students were walking on Route 9G in the village of Tivoli on Jan. 31 when they were struck by a Jeep Wrangler driven by Boeck. The accident killed 20-year-old Evelina Martin Brown of Seattle and 19-year-old Sarah McCausland of Winnetka, Ill. The third student survived.
