An indictment was issued Friday against suspected Netanyahu hit-and-run driver Shoshan Baraby, charging him with counts of drunk manslaughter, abandoning the scene of an accident, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs and obstruction of justice. Police believe Baraby was driving the Audi sedan when it plowed through a crosswalk, killing Svetlana Yigudiyev, 56, and her daughter Shoshana, 25, both from Dimona, and Svetlana’s cousin Alexandra Rubinov, 67, of Netanya.

According to the indictment filed at the Lod Magistrate's Court, Baraby consumed at copious amounts of alcohol and that his attempt to drive was a "ticking timebomb," according to Israel Radio. Police received witness testimony that Baraby was drinking before the accident, and was seen driving off in the Audi sedan before the fatal accident took place.
