From a local crime report: FELONY HIT & RUN, 12/04/07, 300 block S. 12 St. On December 4 around 6:45 am, a pedestrian was crossing S. 12 St near S. Clark St in a crosswalk. A Dodge Caravan traveling east on S. 12 St yielded to the pedestrian, but a white sedan traveling west did not. The pedestrian fell onto the Dodge Caravan while trying to avoid being struck by the sedan. The suspect vehicle fled the scene. The pedestrian suffered minor injuries and was treated at a local hospital.
If the facts are right, the white sedan driver is clearly guilty of failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk, but "hit and run?"
