FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) Jury selection in the trial of an Indianapolis police officer charged with crashing his squad car into two motorcycles, killing a man and seriously injuring two other people, could wrap up as early as Tuesday.

Lawyers in the trial of David Bisard agreed on 10 jurors - five men and five women - by Monday evening.

Twelve jurors and four alternates are needed in the case being tried in Allen Superior Court. The trial has been moved to Fort Wayne because of extensive publicity in central Indiana.

Blood tests expected to be introduced as evidence showed Bisard had a blood-alcohol level more than twice Indiana's legal limit of 0.08 percent when his patrol car plowed into the motorcycles stopped at a traffic light on Aug. 6, 2010.
