Goodman trial enters day 7

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX)-   Prosecutors continue calling witnesses Friday in day seven of the DUI manslaughter trial surrounding Wellington polo mogul John Goodman.

The state still has about four witnesses to call to the stand.

Thursday, in perhaps the most emotional day of testimony, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputy Troy Snelgrove was the only witness to take the stand.

He told the court Goodman smelled strongly of alcohol the night of the crash, and he had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.

The jury heard several 911 calls that were made directly after the crash from passersby, as well as one from Goodman himself.

One driver stopped and called to say he saw Goodman's Bentley, in rough shape on the side of the road. He then called back to say he noticed a car in the canal.

That was 23-year old Scott Wilson's Hyundai. He drowned from the crash.

The jury also saw the two cars that were involved in the wreck in person Thursday.

They were able to see, up close, the damage the accident caused.

Court resumed this morning at 8:30.
