Polo Tycoon Manslaughter Trial Jurors See Crushed Cars from Accident


Polo Club Vehicular Homicide Trial

On Wednesday, witnesses included the first person to call 911 from the scene, other first responders, the woman whose trailer Goodman stopped at for help, and Goodman's girlfriend, who is now his adopted daughter.

An emergency medical technicians at the scene testified that Goodman appeared to have been drinking, but not excessively.

"I felt he had a couple of drinks. He stated that to us," EMT Robert Perreault told the court, but added that he did not believe Goodman has consumed a large amount of alcohol.

Perreault said that Goodman's gait was normal, but that he had a head laceration, slurred speech and kept repeating himself.

Goodman's girlfriend, Heather Hutchins, told the court she didn't remember Goodman telling her of an "end of the world accident" when he called her that night, but said he told her he had been in an accident. She also said Goodman did not mention a car malfunction or having a head injury.

In accordance with a previous court order, there was no mention of the adoption during her testimony.

The case will likely go the jury sometime next week.
