Police: Man hit, killed driver on scooter, then left scene

- Police in New Port Richey have arrested a man they say hit and killed a man on a scooter before leaving the scene with the victim still on the hood of his car. 

It happened just after midnight Saturday in the area of U.S. Hwy. 19 and Main Street.  Officers say 43-year-old Marc Thomas Boysen was driving westbound on Main Street when he crashed into the back of a car stopped at that intersection. Then, Boysen reportedly left the scene of that crash and drove northbound on U.S. 19 in the southbound lanes, where he crashed head-on into a scooter, killing the male driver instantly.

Boysen then sideswiped another sedan, while still traveling north in the southbound lanes. Police say Boysen entered the parking lot of the Winghouse, with the man still on the hood of his car, then crashed into an unoccupied parked car which threw the male off the hood of the car.

Witnesses say bystanders from the Winghouse rushed towards Boysen's car, pulled him out and held him there until police arrived.

So far, the name of the victim on the scooter has not been released.

Boysen is facing multiple charges, including Leaving the Scene of a Crash Involving a Death, Leaving the Scene of a Crash with Property Damage, DUI Property Damage and Felony D.U.I.
