A Dalton woman indicted for felony serious injury by vehicle and reckless driving in connection with a wreck that caused a man to lose his right leg below the knee received a $20,000 bond in Superior Court, according to the clerk of court's office.

Aubriana Shine Hicks received the bond from Judge William Boyett on Friday and she was not in the county jail late Friday afternoon. Boyett imposed special conditions barring Hicks from contact with the man and his family, from operating a motor vehicle and from consuming alcohol.

Hicks was arrested by the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday after being indicted by a grand jury.

The wreck occurred on Waring Road on Sept. 20, 2018, according to one of the indictments returned by the grand jury. The indictments said Hicks was driving a 2007 Mazda 3 on Waring Road and took a curved section over a hill at a speed of “at least 63 miles per hour ...” The speed limit on that section of Waring Road was 35 miles per hour.

One of the indictments said Hicks "lost control" of the vehicle and entered a parking lot at 1800 Waring Road. The Mazda struck the man and pushed him into a 2009 Jeep Wrangler. The indictment said the man became “entrapped” under the Wrangler.
