LANDSCAPER UPDATE: DRIVER ARRESTED
Just heard from a neighbor who works with law enforcement that the driver who hit Kim has finally been taken into custody and makes first court appearance today. I wrote the editor of the Bellingham Herald, and she wrote back that they have the story. Here it is. Consider there to be a trigger warning on the story. If you need help accessing it, let me know. Here are the first two paragraphs of a much longer story.
A driver is suspected of falling asleep behind the wheel before he reportedly hit a Bellingham woman working in her yard with his car last month in the Columbia neighborhood, resulting in the amputation of both of the woman’s legs. The driver reportedly later admitted he used methamphetamine the night before.
Bellingham Police booked Mark David Johnson, 31, into Whatcom County Jail Tuesday, Aug. 3, on suspicion of vehicular assault. He was charged in Whatcom County Superior Court July 22 and a warrant was issued for his arrest July 23.
And here’s the link again for the GoFundMe for the landscaper. Any amount helps.
