WALKER, Mich. (WZZM)- Witnesses say a suspected drunk driver had to know he hit a moped in Walker and was dragging it down the road into Grandville.
They say the wreckage wedged under his vehicle was gouging the road and sending sparks into the air.
"He knew something was under his car," insists Grandville resident Josh Smith. "How could you not know it?" He wonders.
"There were pieces of moped all the way down the road," adds Grandville neighbor Pamela Solden.
Just after 1 a.m. Wednesday, 19-year-old Tony Bloomquist was driving his moped home to Grandville after finishing his shift at Sonic in Alpine Township. He was on Wilson Avenue in Walker, about halfway home, when police say he was hit from behind by a vehicle driven by 21-year-old Matthew Nawrocki of Grandville.
"I heard the crash," says Brenda Bleyenberg, who lives on Wilson Avenue.
