Patty Kennedy--I understand what you are saying, but my question is this: did this accident happenRead More near Purdy or the Lake Katherine area, as opposed to somewhere in Gig Harbor? It would certainly be easier for someone on the Peninsula to recognize or notice a vehicle like the one in the accident, if we realized it happened here, instead of Gig Harbor.

From the Tacoma News Tribune, it looks like a man was hurt, but is "expected to survive".Read More I hope he is ok and I really hope they catch the person who did this. According to the same news article the accident occurred at "Route 302 just south of 154th Street NW".

It is a terrible collision whenever a pedestrian is struck by a car, fast moving, no doubt, as itRead More would be on 302 where the posted speed is 50 mph and many go faster. I think anyone walking along a highway after twilight must be doing so because he must do so... certainly not for fun. As I walk along the roads of Gig Harbor, I am constantly amazed at the kindness of most drivers who wave and smile and slow down and the absolute jerkhood of the occasional other, whether a gray-haired old lady, or a misbehaving teen, who seem to have no care or concern in the world for anyone else walking or driving in their vicinity. Squirrel's Mom -- to re-answer your question, from my reading of the map, yes this injury occurred in Gig Harbor although not within Gig Harbor city limits, and yes it was likely past Lake Katherine Village but before the Key Center interchange.

Yes, by all means blame the mother Beth Brewer. How do you know she was even present at thisRead More barbecue? If she was there, she may not have even known that the uncle was smoking or drinking. The boy's mother is most likely experiencing unimaginable grief and loss. Way to pile on.

Actually, in the original report on the accident, the brother and "mother" were at theRead More same BBQ and she admitted that she was aware that her brother had smoked some pot. Also in the report, the mother gave her brother permission to take the kids in the car. Please read all related information to see the horrific situation that these children were living with.
