IACR: NYC, NY (The New York Post) – The 55-year-old woman pinned under the car of an unlicensed driver who drunkenly plowed into her and three other cyclists during a city bike tour Sunday is now in a coma, prosecutors said Monday.
The news of Nancy Pease’s devastating injuries came as Antonio Pina was arraigned on DWI and vehicular assault charges. He was held on $250,000 bond by Brooklyn Criminal Court Justice Joseph McCormack.
Pina stood dumbstruck and cuffed as prosecutors detailed how doctors had removed Pease’s spleen and said that she had suffered traumatic brain injury, a lacerated liver and other injuries. She remains comatose at Maimonides Medical Center, prosecutor Wilfredo Cotto said.
