Pedestrian Hit by Novak this Morning
This morning columnist Robert Novak hits a pedestrian on the corner of 18th and K street during his commute to work. Novak hit the 66 year old man and kept on driving until a cyclist, David Bono, stopped him a half a block away. Novak stated that he didn't know that he hit the man, but Bono says that it was obvious since the man was splayed across Novak's windshield.
Robert Novak was not arrested, however he was ticketed with failure to yield right of way.
My question is, "Why aren't authorities doing more than just handing out tickets?"
Earlier this month William K. Johnson was acquitted of the deaths of two Jackson County cyclists. The two cyclists, Larry Gaunt 54 and Sierra Gaunt 14, were out training for the MS-150 when Johnson slammed into them while speeding. He killed two people just because he didn't want to move over to the other lane. Just think about it.
