SELMER, Tenn. (AP) A professional drag racer whose car plowed into a parade crowd last summer, killing six people and injuring 22 others, surrendered to authorities Thursday on multiple felony charges.
Troy Critchley, 38, is charged with six counts of vehicular homicide due to recklessness and 22 counts of reckless aggravated assault, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
Critchley was indicted during a March 4 grand jury session but the charges remained under seal until Thursday.
The Australian-born driver, who lives in Texas, attended a court hearing, posted $35,000 bond and surrendered his passport. Trial was set for Nov. 3.
Critchley was performing a "burnout" routine spinning the tires to send up clouds of smoke when his car crashed into spectators at a charity event June 16 in Selmer, about 80 miles east of Memphis.
