A pedestrian was Killed on SE Stark (update)

12 Dec

A man driving a Jeep last night lost control of his Jeep and jumped the sidewalk and struck a 42 year old mother of three. The Oregonian is reporting on this and says:

“Temple has been arrested on accusations of driving under the influence of intoxicants, reckless driving and second-degree manslaughter.”

After recent event I had to ask myself in anything would happen to the driver. I’m glad to they are being charger but very sad to see this happen. I wish things where this cut and dry in bike related crashes.

Update:  Of course the day after a pedestrian was killer a cyclist had to be hit too.  This has turned out to be quite a year.  Read all about it here.
