Hanin Goma, the 23-year-old who allegedly caused an accident that resulted in an 9-year-old boy's death, was indicted at the Skokie Courthouse on Thursday.
Goma, a Skokie resident, is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and felony aggravated assault. She is also charged with driving under the influence of drugs, prosecutors told the Chicago Tribune.
With her bond set at $250,000, Goma is waiting in jail for her July 9 arraignment.
A Grecian Kitchen employee, Goma caused a crash that ultimately led to the death of 9-year-old Carter Vo, a student at Madison Elementary School, police said. Vo was struck around 5 p.m. near the intersection of Main Street and St. Louis Avenue on May 21. He was pronounced dead about an hour later.
A few days after the accident, it was discovered that Goma had marijuana and amphetamines in her system, police said. In March 2011, Goma was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and criminal damage to property, the Tribune reported.
In the aftermath of Vo's death, the community banded together and held a fundraising event as well as a bike ride and memorial to raise awareness. The Village of Skokie also held two meetings with residents regarding traffic safety, and said they will look into whether more stop signs are needed in the community.
