A Garland man was indicted Wednesday on charges related to a 2018 wreck in which several cars were smashed on Lamar Street in Sherman.
Thomas Burke, 67, was indicted on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and three counts of accident involving injury. The indictments are formal charges and are not an indication of guilt.
