A surveillance photo released Friday shows a crowd surrounding 16-year-old João Cardim after he was hit by a motorcycle driven by Brazilian model Bruno Krupp last Saturday.
Brazil’s TV Globo network reported that he bought the motorcycle in May but failed to pass a road test.
Before going into surgery Wednesday, Krupp told his attorney, William Pena, that the motorcycle’s brakes failed as it approached Cardim.
“There was no deception. Nobody leaves the house to beat someone to death,” Pena told reporters on Thursday. “Oh, I’m going to run into someone in the corner.” There is a certain exaggeration in everything they publish.”
But Krupp is said to have been speeding at 90 miles per hour before hitting the teenager.
Security cameras installed at several businesses on Lúcio Costa Avenue showed speeding in the left lane.
‘He is known, he spends every weekend here. Those noisy motorcycles fly from here, sometimes they pass by here, and if we look, they are already far away,” a booth worker who saw the accident on Saturday told Globo.
