Matthew Pumar to be arraigned Aug. 31

Matthew Pumar, the Mountain View driver accused of accidentally hitting and killing William Ware, is scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 31, according to Duffy Magilligan, the deputy district attorney on the case.

It will be the first time Pumar has appeared in court since he was arrested on one count of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence on July 10. Pumar immediately posted $100,000 bail.

Police said that on June 21 the 21-year-old Pumar sped through a red light, swerved to dodge a truck entering the intersection, lost control of his car, then ran over Ware, who was waiting at a bus stop in the 1800 block of California Street.

Ware was dismembered by the violent impact of the collision, according to his niece, Dolores Marquez.
