A 23-year-old Dundee man has been indicted on eight felony charges – including manslaughter – for allegedly killing a motorcyclist while driving drunk in May.

Jamie Dunn was indicted earlier this month by a Schuyler County grand jury in connection with a fatal accident on state Route 414.

Dunn was allegedly driving drunk shortly before 6 p.m. May 31 in Hector when he attempted to pass another vehicle in a no-passing zone.

While making the pass, Dunn’s pickup truck struck two motorcycles head-on.

One of the motorcyclists, Gary Parker, 46, of Lyons, Wayne County, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The second motorcyclist, Timothy Herkimer, 29, of Sodus, Wayne County, was seriously injured in the crash.

Dunn was indicted on the following charges:

• Second-degree manslaughter, a class C felony.

• Second-degree vehicular manslaughter, a class D felony.

• Criminally negligent homicide, a class E felony.

• Two counts of second-degree vehicular assault, a class E felony.

• Two counts of second-degree assault, a class D felony.

• First-degree reckless endangerment, a class D felony.

• Reckless driving, a misdemeanor.

• Two counts of misdemeanor driving while intoxicated.

Dunn faces up to 15 years in state prison if convicted of the most serious charge.
