A Visit to a Newly-Erected Roadside Shrine
- Boyum, 40, was riding her bike in the shoulder at around 7:45 a.m. Sunday when she was hit by a motorcycle driven by Mark Scerbo and thrown off of the bike.
Witnesses told investigators that she hit the road and was then run over by a car driven by Scerbo’s girlfriend, 23-year-old Megan Merkel, who continued driving after the accident but was later stopped by Webster police. She was arrested for driving while intoxicated, and may face other charges.
Investigators say that Scerbo, 22, was driving his motorcycle in a reckless manner, speeding up and passing Merkel’s car and then slowing down and doing “wheelies.”
