Charges Bound Over To Court In Deadly DUI Accident

Posted: Updated:

The case moves towards trial for a Waterford man charged with hitting and killing a pedestrian.

John Petersen waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday.
He's charged with homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, and involuntary manslaughter.
Back in July, police say Petersen hit and killed 27-year old Bryon Long, who was walking along Peach street, pushing a shopping cart.
Millcreek police say when Petersen struck Long, his blood alcohol content was nearly twice the legal limit.
