It’s not every day that the same person is involved in multiple hit-and-runs, especially when that person is the victim.
The details are pretty gruesome and I feel awful for this woman and her loved ones. But holy hell, how drunk do you have to be in order to be the second perpetrator? Is it possible for breathalyzers to go off the scale? Good lord.
Authorities were investigating the death of a 49-year-old woman who was walking along a grassy shoulder of a Dade City roadway before being struck by a hit-and-run driver at 3:30 a.m. Authorities found her torso on the shoulder and her legs in the roadway.
Thomas Krummen, 23, approached the scene at a high speed, driving directly at investigators. He ignored commands to stop, ran over the victim’s legs and fled. Troopers chased him and used a maneuver with a patrol car to force him to stop, the highway patrol said.
Krummen is said to have had two passengers in the vehicle with him who tried to flag police down and get out, which leads me to wonder what kind of shape they were in if it was decided that old Thomas here should be the one driving.
He was charged with a slew of offenses. Aggravated assault with a motor vehicle upon a law enforcement officer, reckless driving, DUI, fleeing and eluding, destruction of evidence, driving while license revoked and false imprisonment.
