BOISE — Prosecutors described Monday how Thomas Alec MacFarlane, 22, allegedly carried the badly injured woman for a block and a half after the crash, before abandoning her in a Manitou Street driveway.
He reportedly admitted he had been drinking when he crashed his moped near Garfield and Manitou Streets before 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
The injured 30-year-old woman, who had been MacFarlanes passenger, was found at 8 a.m. by a man walking his dog.
Her name has not been released.
MacFarlane, who just completed his junior year at BSU, is charged with a felony for leaving the scene of the accident. He was arraigned in court Monday. If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison.
Prosecutors said the woman suffered a spinal fracture and other life-threatening injuries. Police previously said the woman also had a serious head injury. She remained in a coma Monday, prosecutors said.
Police who responded to a report of a motorcycle crash found the crashed moped and a trail of blood. MacFarlane was arrested later Sunday.
A judge set MacFarlane's bond at $250,000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 19.
