4 Pedestrians Hit in Kent Over Weekend
Police investigating crashes
Four people were struck by cars in Kent this weekend, and charges are possibly pending in each of the crashes.
The crashes happened Friday evening and early on Saturday and Sunday morning.
All four victims are alive, according to Kent Police, but the extent of their injuries is unknown.
The first crash happened Friday at 7:51 p.m. near the intersection of South DePeyster Street and East Main Street.
Kent Police Sgt. Jason Short said the victim, whose name was unavailable, was in the cross walk in front of the Kent Stage when they were struck.
"A white Jeep was traveling north on DePeyster Street, and it made a left turn onto Main Street there and struck a pedestrian," Short said. "The (victim) was transported and already released" from the hospital.
The second crash involved two pedestrians and happened at 12:37 a.m. Saturday.
Short said Latresha A. Fuchs was driving south on Water Street near Erie Street when she veered to the right and hit Kayla N. Freriks and Marci L. Herr.
"After the pedestrians were struck the driver continued north and struck a parked car that was unoccupied," he said. "Alcohol may be a factor."
The third crash happened Sunday at 2:50 a.m. on North Lincoln Street, where Doron P. Kutash was hit. The driver fled the scene.
Kutash is recovering in the hospital with leg injuries, according to his Facebook page.
