William Crum, the 68-year-old Texas driver who hit a passing motorcycle and said “I don’t care,” has been arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
The incident occurred on Saturday about 5 miles north of Granbury. William Crum was recorded on video as his car swerved across the center line and struck a motorcycle, injuring the driver and female passenger. Crums claimed some sort of insect (Wasp) bit him as he was driving causing him to jerk the wheel and swerve into the left lane.
News 8 asked Crum if he would like the chance to apologize. “To her,” he said, referring to Sanders’ girlfriend. “But to him, no. Because he was doing something illegal.”
Eric Sanders, the driver of the motorcycle, believes that Crum intentionally swerved. Sanders suffered abrasions, and his girlfriend, Debra Simpson, was taken to Harris Methodist Hospital with a broken wrist and deep arm lacerations. She was moved from ICU today to a regular room and is listed in stable condition.
“That’s the worst thing,” Sanders said, “[Is] when I saw that dude saying, ‘I don’t care, I don’t care.’ He says it four to five times. I’ve never seen this guy in my life. And he ran me over.” Crum is to remain in custody pending a bond hearing Tuesday. If convicted, Crum faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
