Adrian Foushee, 25, and Stanley Chambless, 35, were riding a motor scooter east on Apalachee Parkway when the fatal wreck happened. The two men were hit by a truck traveling on the parkway, causing the scooter and truck to burst into flames.
The scooter and Foushee, the passenger of the motor scooter, were dragged and trapped underneath the pickup truck near Richardson Road. The Tallahassee Democrat reports that Foushee was pronounced dead at the scene. Chambless was found in the eastbound lane of the parkway near Victory Garden Drive, around 230 feet from the initial point of impact. He suffered a lacerated spleen, fractured ribs, and neck injuries.
The driver of the pickup truck, 33-year-old Andrew Jacob Weber, fled from the scene and was hiding behind nearby bushes when police found him. According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Weber never called emergency crews following the wreck, and he told police that he didn’t know he had hit another vehicle.
Weber was receiving treatment at a hospital for arm injuries when they discovered he had a blood alcohol content of .358 – over four times the legal limit. Weber was arrested on Sunday and charged with DUI manslaughter and attempting to leave the scene.
