Ligon: ‘I do not remember the ride I took’

DOVER — A 29-year-old Maryland man testified Wednesday that he blacked out after a futile attempt to brake his vehicle that then careened out of control and injured seven people during Delaware State University’s homecoming weekend in 2015.

Gregory A. Ligon, of Bowie, said he was “frustrated” and “surprised” that a Mercedes Benz safety function failed to shift the vehicle from reverse to park as he exited the vehicle while attempting to parallel park,

The DSU alumnus and former Hornets football player said he left the car to ask people behind him to move from the parking spot for their safety, but hadn’t yet spoken before noticing his vehicle beginning to drift backward at approximately 7:28 p.m. on Oct. 24, 2015.

How can someone be so dumb and graduate from DSU? Bet he was on a football scholarship.
