Tyler Greer of Piscataway, New Jersey, turned himself in on Wednesday (March 23) after he ran over a spectator while doing donuts in his car.
The incident took place Saturday (March 19) around midnight at Vandam and Greenwich in SoHo, a high-end shopping and art district in New York City.
Hundreds of spectators surrounded Tyler’s red Infinity sedan that night as he did continuous donuts in the street.
A few spectators ran out into the street to record Tyler doing the donuts on their phones.
When 23-year-old Christopher Brito attempted to run out to record with his phone, he tripped, fell to the ground, and was run over.
Tyler, the driver of the car, took off.
Christopher was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he suffered a skull fracture, brain injury, and body trauma.
He is in critical condition.
Christopher’s uncle told the news that the incident was traumatizing.
I’m not gonna lie. I cried last night. I woke up scared.
It’s a little traumatizing, especially when it happens to your family.
It’s very serious. He’s lucky to be alive.
The family has set up a GoFundMe page, with a goal of $30,000, to help out with Christopher’s recovery and medical expenses.
Tyler Greer was seen on FOX 5 New York news on Wednesday (March 23) being walked to the 1st Precinct in Lower Manhattan.
