    (c) An indictment.
    (d) Upon commencement of a prosecution for a violation of
Section 11-501 of the Illinois Vehicle Code, or a similar
provision of a local ordinance, or Section 9-3 of the Criminal
Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code of 2012 relating to the

    For the purposes of this Section "victim" shall mean an
individual who has suffered personal injury as a result of the
commission of a violation of Section 11-501 of the Illinois
Vehicle Code, or a similar provision of a local ordinance, or
Section 9-3 of the Criminal Code of 1961 or the Criminal Code
of 2012 relating to the offense of reckless homicide. In regard
to a violation of Section 9-3 of the Criminal Code of 1961 or
