The pedestrian, Russell Maurer, 60, was critically injured but survived and has since been released from the hospital. He is alleged to have been carrying a chainsaw along the side of the road at the time of the accident, 10:45 p.m.
Judge Robert Wiggins continued Walsh’s bail at $20,000 cash or $40,000 bond.
