Memphis (AP) -- Former State Senator Kathryn Bowers has been indicted on a reckless driving charge.
The indictment late last week stems from an accident last August involving Bowers' vehicle and a delivery truck on Interstate 40 in Memphis.
Earlier, prosecutors dismissed charges of drunken driving and failure to exercise due care.
Bowers resigned her seat from the state legislature in august shortly before the accident.
Bowers also faces federal bribery charges. She is accused of accepting bribes from undercover agents posing as businessmen seeking government favors.
No one was hurt in the accident. Bowers had said she was on prescription medication at the time.
If convicted she faces a maximum six months in jail and a $500 fine for the misdemeanor.
No hearing has been set.
