HUDSON, Ohio–An 18-year-old man is dead after an accident involving an alleged drunk driver, according to the communications manager with the City of Hudson.
Jody Roberts told FOX 8 that Philip Wiese, 47, was driving an SUV eastbound on SR 303 in Hudson on Saturday night around 11:30 p.m.
He reportedly made a left turn onto St. Regis in front of someone on a motorcycle. That person, Scott Graber, 18, hit the side of Wiese’s vehicle. He was wearing a helmet.
Officials said Wiese stopped at the scene and called 911.
Graber was taken to Akron City Hospital. He died from his injuries on Sunday.
Officials said Wiese did poorly on a field sobriety test and refused a breathalyzer; he was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence and aggravated vehicular homicide.
Wiese appeared via video arraignment on Monday; bond was set at $50,000.
His next court date is set for Oct. 21.
