MIDTOWN – A tour-bus driver was arrested and charged with DWI after he hit and killed a 29-year-old Philadelphia man just before 10 p.m. Saturday night in midtown, according to police.
Timothy White was hit by the bus as it turned onto Ninth Avenue at W. 47th Street. He was dragged for nearly thirty feet under the wheel of the bus and horrified pedestrians had to flag down the bus driver to get him to stop, according to the New York Daily News.
The driver, Steve Drappel, 57, of West Palm Beach, Fla., was arrested after failing a Breathalyzer test. A bottle of booze was reportedly found on him at the arrest.
