He was placed on an assisted living device and airlifted to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. He is currently listed in critical condition.

The original release from the Fayetteville Police Department noted the passenger was deceased.

Michael Herman was processed at the Cumberland County Detention Center and received a $21,000 secured bond.
