LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man has been indicted on murder charges in the crash that killed a Louisville mother on Thursday.

In October, police said they were conducting a drug investigation on 14th Street when the driver, Joseph Johnson, fled from the scene.

Officers said Johnson was driving a truck when he ran the stop sign at 39th and Kentucky Streets, killing Stephanie Melson, 31.

Melson had just left the daycare where she worked to get some lunch when the truck crashed into her red Pontiac.
