NEW ORLEANS - 22 additional charges have been filed against the suspect in the Endymion parade crash that hospitalized 21 people Saturday night.
According to a report from WWLTV, 25-year-old Neilson Rizzuto is facing 12 new counts of vehicular negligent injury and 10 counts of first-degree vehicular negligent injuring.
Rizzuto was previously charged with reckless operation of a vehicle, hit and run driving that caused serious injury or death and two counts of vehicular negligent injuring.
