7 Eyewitness News Staff

JACKSON, Tenn.- Former Jackson Police Officer Jeremy Insell has been indicted by a Madison County Grand Jury, stemming from a crash in January where officers said he was at fault when the school bus he was driving crashed into another vehicle.

The July grand jury indicted him on charges of aggravated assault and failing to stop at a railroad crossing. He was arrested Thursday and is now free on $5,000 bond.

Insell is accused of running the stop sign at Lambuth and Hatton Streets and crashing head-on into a SUV. That drive suffered two broken legs.

Insell was put on administrative leave after the wreck, but in March resigned from the department.
