MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Six months after EMT Laura Elizabeth Pullam, 29, was struck and killed by a vehicle while working another crash scene along Interstate 65, the man behind the wheel of the truck that hit her is being officially indicted.

Robert Allen Cumbie, 42, of Montgomery, is charged with vehicular homicide in Pullam's death.

Alabama State Troopers on the scene that chilly December 15th morning said Cumbie was speeding and passing traffic that had slowed because of icy road conditions and the emergency vehicles that were on the roadside.

Cumbie's pick-up truck left the roadway near mile marker 161 in Hope Hull and struck Pullam as she was giving aid to passengers in another vehicle that has crashed a short time earlier.

Pullam was rushed to Baptist South Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Judge Charles Price has yet to set a trial date in Cumbie's case.
