Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith says the man had a blood-alcohol content of .07, but they’re awaiting toxicology results to see if anything else was in his system.
“We’ve seen way too many incidents of people either not paying attention or people drinking too much and causing accidents where others die,” Smith told WWJ. “These poor victims are just sitting there waiting for a bus, minding their own business and they get trapped under a large truck. So I’m glad they are okay, I’m glad the police department acted quickly and I’m glad that this defendant is behind bars on a $70,000 cash or surety bond.”MORE NEWS: Delta Wants Other Airlines To Share ‘No-Fly’ Lists To Help Stop Unruly Passengers
