Victim of New Castle hit-and-run: ‘I'm glad to be alive'



NEW CASTLE, Pa. - The alleged victim of a near-fatal hit-and-run last month was in court Tuesday as all charges against the suspect were waived to court.

Aaron Fuller told Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz that he spotted a driver speeding on his street, so he tried to get the vehicle’s license plate number to report it to police.

“It got way out of control,” Fuller said.

According to Fuller, he also believed the driver, later identified as Michael Falba, was doing donuts in his yard.

“I followed him. Yes (I regret that now),” Fuller said.

According to police, Falba rammed his car into Fuller, put it in reverse and then ran him over again. Fuller said he was dragged about 8-10 feet and left for dead.

Investigators said Falba then allegedly got out of his car and told Fuller to "have a nice day."

“He looked at him and said, ‘Have a nice day.’ Really, he said, ‘Have a nice day,’” Fuller’s fiancée Janice Carroll said in disbelief.

Fuller, who suffered a broken leg, told Marcinkiewicz he’s glad he survived.

“I’m glad to be alive,” Fuller said.

Falba is facing attempted homicide charges.
