SCARBOROUGH — The 38-year-old truck driver involved in the prom-night crash that killed Scarborough High School senior Steven Delano and injured three other passengers was indicted by a Cumberland County grand jury on charges of manslaughter, aggravated assault and reckless conduct with a weapon.

Nathan Allen, of Casco, was driving the empty jet-fuel tanker that struck Delano’s car at the intersection of Holmes and Payne roads on May 8, killing Delano and seriously injuring 19-year-old Kevin Grondin. The boys’ two prom dates, who were in the back seat of the vehicle, received minor injuries.

An indictment is a determination that enough evidence exists to prosecute, not a finding of guilt.
