Driver who intentionally ran over NYC pedestrian on Halloween night claimed he thought he hit a trash can
A driver who critically injured a pedestrian in NYC on Halloween Night and was charged with attempted murder told the NY Daily News he had no idea he hit someone. 50 year old Richard Keith was driving his car in Long Island City on Halloween night when a group of teenage pranksters threw eggs at his car. According to witnesses, the driver became enraged, made a U-turn, jumped the curb and plowed into the teens. He ran over 17 year old Christopher Miraba, the starting quarterback of the Long Island City High School Football Team. Miraba suffered critical injury that included fractures to his pelvis, spine and skull as well as injury to his right lung. Keith said he flipped out because the event happened just hours after the terror attack in Manhattan. He is facing 25 years in prison if convicted.
