A Fayette County grand jury has indicted a Lexington man on assault and other charges in connection with a July traffic crash.
Richard David Hendron, 38, is charged with second-degree assault, first-degree wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
It's the second time since 2010 that Hendron has been charged with leaving an accident in Lexington.
The new indictment, returned Wednesday, stems from a single-vehicle crash on Alexandria Drive about 10:30 a.m. July 12.

According to police reports, the driver fled after the wreck, leaving passengers Theresa Shock and Mackenzie Puyear behind.
The indictment charges that Hendron's conduct caused Shock to be injured and created a risk of injury for Puyear.
He also is charged with failure to maintain insurance and driving on a suspended license.
In the 2010 case, Hendron was charged with leaving the scene of a wreck, failure to have insurance and driving on a suspended or revoked license. The charges followed a February 2010 wreck on Unity Drive near Red Mile Road. A pedestrian was slightly injured in that wreck, according to published reports.
The charges were all misdemeanors. Henderson ultimately pleaded guilty and served seven days in jail.
