The driver of a Maserati was going an estimated 144 m.p.h. in January when the Italian luxury car slammed into the rear of another vehicle in Bloomfield Township, killing a 53-year-old mother of three, according to newly released police reports.
Gregory Allen Belkin got out of his burning Maserati and laughed as he ran around the other driver’s car, according to Bloomfield Township Police Officer Scott Schuknecht, the first officer on the scene.
"Gregory said he was the driver of the Maserati several times," Schuknecht wrote in his report. "Gregory said he looked down and looked up while driving, and the vehicle he hit was stopped on the road. I reminded him the other driver was seriously injured and laughing was not appropriate."
Rhonda T. Williams, 53, who was lifeless in her smashed 2009 Subaru Legacy, was transported to St. Joseph Hospital where she was pronounced dead. She was driving from work to her home in Oakland Township when the crash occurred shortly after 9 p.m.
Belkin, 43, the driver of the 2014 Maserati Ghibli, was arraigned three days after the crash on felony charges of second-degree murder and operating under the influence of alcohol — causing death. He pleaded not guilty and was denied bond.
He’s currently undergoing a competency evaluation to determine if he’s mentally fit to stand trial.
