WEYMOUTH, Mass. — Weymouth Police say a man was drunk and on drugs when he slammed into another car and a man crossing the street.
The crash occurred around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday near Washington Street. Police say the car hit another vehicle before striking a pedestrian.
The 39-year-old victim was taken to South Shore Hospital with serious and life-threatening injuries. Both drivers were also taken to South Shore Hospital.
The driver of the vehicle that hit the man, 51-year-old Thomas Mohan from Weymouth, has been charged with OUI and negligent operation causing bodily injury.
“He's going through a very rough time. But that's no excuse for hurting other people at all,” Claire Mohan, Thomas' mother, said.
Police say Thomas Mohan was under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
