Steve 'The Homer' True back on the air just one week after crash
MILWAUKEE - It's like he never missed a beat. Donning a neck brace, Steve "The Homer" True was in true form live over the airwaves at 540 ESPN Wisconsin.
"People have been incredibly kind, I am not surprised ... because I know the area but I am a little taken aback," said True. "I don't even like myself that much."
His radio partner Thunder couldn't be happier to see his pal back at the mic.
"Knowing Homer, he wants to be on the air for the next 400 years. I don't know if he has 400 years, but it is awesome to have him back," said Thunder.
It has been one week since the radio personality was broadsided in an intersection at Hampton and Fond du Lac avenues.
Robert Harris was behind the wheel of the Cadillac that hit Homer.
A search warrant reveals details from witnesses moments before the crash.
A witness "observed the cadillac traveling at a high rate of speed, weaving through traffic."
"She was afraid that the driver of the Cadillac was going to kill someone."
Another driver stopped at Hampton Avenue, noticed a speeding Cadillac, and quickly realized the driver was not going to stop for the red light.
Police found beer cans and a bottle of sleeping pills in Harris' car.
As for Homer - he doesn't remember much about the crash.
"There are 4 hours of my life that I will never know exactly what happened. They have not told me, and I don't really care."
