Victim has little memory of boulevard car accident

Repairing damages after a semi crashed through the west wall of a McDonald's may put a damper on the "now hiring" sign outside the building.
Officers were dispatched to the McDonald's on the corner of Amarillo Boulevard and North Pierce on a major vehicle collision. Seven people were taken to the hospital Tuesday night after that semi struck a white Honda, hopped a curb, struck a second vehicle and took down an entire wall.
Josh Hunter, a passenger in the white Honda, said he was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, however he has zero recollection of the entire night.
"They've been telling me what happened, but I just don't remember none of it," Hunter said.
Hunter also doesn't recall being ejected from the Honda, but according to his step dad and the driver they found him in the middle of the street.
"They're saying I was walking around, that I walked back into my work and it's just not coming to mind," Hunter said.
Sgt. Brent Barbee of APD said the semi was heading south on Pierce and the Honda east on Amarillo Boulevard. He said one of the two cars ran a red light, though investigators are not sure which one at this point.
"This is an obvious case of someone running a red light," Barbee said. "It's going to take physical evidence, eye witness accounts and more to come to a conclusion."
Hunter said it's frustrating to not remember those six hours of his life, especially when no one has been held accountable for the accident.
"I just want to know what really happened last night, that's all," he said.
