He was placed on an assisted living device and airlifted to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. He is currently listed in critical condition.

The original release from the Fayetteville Police Department noted the passenger was deceased.

Herman is now facing charges of driving while impaired, driving after drinking under 21, felony hit and run, felony injury by motor vehicle, reckless driving and driving with no operators license.

Michael Herman was processed at the Cumberland County Detention Center and received a $21,000 secured bond.
