TYLER, TX (KLTV) - TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A Smith County grand jury has indicted Luis Zapata, 30, of intoxication manslaughter. His bond has been set at $1,000,000 and remains jailed.

Back in January, Tyler police say Zapata was impaired when he crashed on Loop 323 and Commerce in Tyler. Antonio Lozano, 23, died and Zapata was injured.

Tyler police say Zapata even left a local hospital the day of the crash to avoid being arrested.
