A Michigan man reportedly laughed after crashing his Maserati and killing a mother of three.
According to the New York Daily News, Gregory Allen Belkin was allegedly drinking and driving after his girlfriend declined his proposal in January.
Rhonda T. Williams was killed in after his Maserati slammed into her.
Police claim that Belkin was trying to call his girlfriend when he dropped his cell phone right before the crash. They believe that alcohol and high speeds contributed to the crash.
According to his call logs, Belkin called his girlfriend at 9:02 p.m. minutes before the crash. “We’ll see how the night goes,” he reportedly said. “I’m going 100, I’m going 120. I’m going 150,” his call disconnected after that.
When police arrived, they found the driver’s car on fire and Belkin sitting nearby, laughing.
“I reminded him the other driver was seriously injured and laughing was not appropriate,” Bloomfield Township Police Officer Scott Schuknecht.
Belkin was given several sobriety tests before he was arrested for drunk driving.
He was arraigned on January 27 on felony charges of second-degree murder and drunk driving. He is pleading not guilty.
He is reportedly no longer in custody and said the events of that night are “blurry.” He claimed he remembered trying to call his girlfriend and dropping his phone, which he believes lead to the crash.
