Hoquiam transient struck by vehicle after growling at woman
A Hoquiam man was hit by a car on Wednesday when he walked out into traffic.
The Aberdeen Police Department tells KXRO that officers spoke to a witness who said she was walking on Simpson Avenue and a man had been walking behind her, growling and yelling at her. She said that she crossed the street to get away from him, and as the man followed he was struck by a vehicle.
Officers spoke to the driver, a 59 year old Shelton woman, who said he walked out in front of her without any warning. Another driver who witnessed the accident said that the other vehicle was not speeding and the man gave no warning.
The 33 year old Hoquiam transient was transported to Grays Harbor Community Hospital by the Aberdeen Fire Department.
