Here’s something I hadn’t heard about until just now; according to the Spokesman-Review, a pedestrian apparently under the influence of alcohol was killed Tuesday night after being struck by a vehicle in Mead.
Dorothy J. Ryan, 47, of Spokane was walking in the northbound lane of Highway 2 at 8:20 p.m. when she was hit by 2002 Ford Focus driven by Sara M. Babcock, 20, of Chattaroy. A news release from the WSP said Ryan was drunk. She was taken to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead, the release said.
The accident is under investigation. No charges have been filed.
