“Memories of that crash won’t evade my memory,” Boogie told the Post

A good Samaritan rescued Boogie from the crashed vehicle. He was taken to the hospital and released one two days later.

FHP said, they have arrested the 35-year-old driver on DUI charges.

According to a new charging affidavit released, his blood alcohol content less than an hour after the crash was .274 g/100ml, and bottles of Bacardi Superior Rum and Crown Royal Regal Apple whisky were found in his car.

The 35-year-old went before a judge, where he remained mostly silent, except to answer “Yes sir” to several of the judge’s questions.

A judge said that if the driver posts his bond, he’ll be on house arrest and will be fitted with a GPS monitoring device. He can only leave his house under specific conditions, like medical and legal purposes. Anyone with additional information about the crash is asked to contact the FHP Department.


Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
