November 17, 2018

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has been convicted in a drunken driving crash that left a motor scooter passenger dead.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports that 35-year-old Andrew Weber was found guilty Thursday of DUI manslaughter and other charges.

Authorities say Weber was driving his pickup truck on a Tallahassee road in December 2016 when he struck a scooter ridden by 35-year-old Stanley Chambless and 25-year-old Adrian Foushee. The truck and scooter caught fire, and Weber fled the scene.

The crash left Foushee dead and Chambless seriously injured.

Police say they found Weber behind some bushes about a half-hour after the crash.

Records show he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.358 percent. Florida law considers a driver impaired at 0.08 percent.
