Niagara Gazette — Witnesses told police they saw a man “in a gray shirt, standing in the roadway, covered in blood.” The witnesses also said the man “got into a car and left the scene.”
Investigators determined the man in the gray shirt was Zephier and they tracked him to a home on Mount Hope Road. He was also hospitalized at that time with non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the car, a 38-year-old man, also suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Prosecutors have said Zephier had a blood alcohol level of 0.09 percent, hours after the crash. They also said there was evidence of “drugs” in his blood.
