WEYMOUTH, Mass. — The man accused of driving under the influence before crashing into another car and pedestrian Tuesday was arraigned in his hospital bed Wednesday.
The Assistant District Attorney said 51-year-old Thomas Mohan had a blood alcohol level of .36 at the time of the crash, more than four times the legal limit.
"I heard the boom and I looked out and all I could see was dust and everything like that," one witness said.
Surveillance video of a field sobriety test shows Mohan having significant trouble.
"At one point during the nine-step walking test he fell face first onto the asphalt,” the Assistant District Attorney said during Mohan’s arraignment.
Police also said another driver had observed Mohan's impaired driving and was trying to get him off the road.
"She said all the way from Rockland, calling 911 trying to get the police to get him off the road. He was going up on curbs and sidewalks, swerving and everything," the assistant district attorney said.
Family members say the victim was 39-year-old Michael Carfagna, a father of two, who had just moved to Weymouth.
Robert Goulston was at Mohan’s arraignment and will have the latest updates on FOX25 News at 5.
