From a Fox5 story on the recent Intersection of Doom crash.
"When I asked him why I was getting a ticket since I was in the crosswalk, he basically said that the witness told him that I didn't have lights, and I came out of nowhere, and I wasn't in the crosswalk and was in the middle of the road,” says Kelley.
She should have had lights. I'll agree with that. But I used to teach high school physics and so I say with great confidence that she did not "come out of nowhere."
She says what hurts more is that the driver who hit her never got out of her car to check on her.
She also says while she was lying on the ground, another driver stopped and started hurling insults at her.
"He got out and started yelling about how bikes don't belong on the road, and I needed to be on the sidewalk. I should have been hit,” Kelley says.
"Who are the people in your neighborhood..."
We reached out to a U.S. Park Police official for comment, but she referred FOX 5 to the official police report.
