Dianne Williamson hit a pedestrian

To date, there have been 305 pedestrians struck by motor vehicles this year with 6 accidents resulting in fatalities.

In the past few months, WPD has seen fit to issue press releases about only six of the 300+ non-fatal accidents.

Two involved children who were treated in a hospital.

Two (1, 2) involved the WPD hitting pedestrians.  Both were treated in a hospital.

One involved someone who hit a man in a wheelchair…who was treated in a hospital.  (Sounding repetitive yet?)

The other involved a prominent local columnist and a pedestrian who did not need any medical treatment.

There will be no new additional information released at this time.
