Driver who crashed into New Orleans parade crowd identified

Driver slams into New Orleans crowd

The 25-year-old is facing two counts of vehicular negligent injuring, one count of hit and run driving causing death or serious injury, and one count of reckless operation of a motor vehicle. John Rizzuto told the station he spoke with his son multiple times Sunday morning and that his son said "a stranger gave him a drink off the street and that's the last thing he remembered".

Instead of trying to stop, Bill Lecke said the truck was gaining speed before eventually crashing into a dump truck that was parked on the route.

Among the injured was one police officer.

Five people were taken to the trauma center and seven people declined medical attention.

According to a breathlyzer test taken almost two hours after the crash occured, Rizzuto's blood-alcohol content level was nearly three times the state legal's limit for drivers, police have said.

Should Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro's office accept the felony charges, or others, Rizutto's case will be allotted to Criminal District Judge Benedict Willard. If they do, Blackburn has said he would make house arrest a condition of Rizzuto's release.

Among those injured Saturday was a New Orleans Police Department officer, Michelle Woodfork, who suffered leg and shoulder injuries.

Tracy Shields said she, her husband, and other family members and friends were focused more on socializing than watching the parade, when Rizzuto's pickup truck appeared on Carrollton Avenue.
