A Municipal Court judge this morning held a former Temple student for trial on aggravated assault and related offenses in a hit-and-run accident in April that seriously injured a Temple law school student on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Nicholas Hasselback, 22, was held for trial after Judge Jimmie Moore heard testimony at Hasselback's preliminary hearing from a passenger who was in his car.
Michael Graber Jr. testified that he and Hasselback were at the Public House restaurant and bar, 18th Street near Arch, the night of April 10 into April 11.
When they left, about 2 a.m., Hasselback was driving at about 50 to 60 mph westbound on the Parkway, Graber said.
Graber said he saw pedestrians in the intersection at 22nd Street and tried to warn Hasselback, but Hasselback did not stop.
Hasselback hit Tony Foltz, 25, then a third-year Temple law student, then fled the scene, Graber said.
Foltz is now recovering at Magee Rehabilitation after having gone through numerous surgeries at Hahnemann University Hospital.
