Scott Brown, “and the truck ran him over.” Keyser’s friends rushed him to a hospital; he was treated for a broken femur, and facial and bodily injuries, according to authorities. “It appears that alcohol played a part in this accident,” Brown said. “The victim had consumed alcohol just before this happened.” (MS/Hudson Register Star) ...That’s good, because otherwise we would have thought he was just stupid.
