There was recently a story aired about a Wausau Policeman hitting a pedestrian with his squad car.
When I heard about this on the news, it was mentioned that there was a power outage when this accident occurred, so I did not think much of it.
That is, until I saw the actual video.
According to the news article, when the Police Officer started his emergency lights, the on-dash camera automatically starts and also provokes a 30 second buffer from BEFORE the lights were activated. So, the whole entire incident is recorded on video.
The impact is not shown on the video, but, you can clearly see this man walking, so why didn't the Officer see him?
I think he was distracted and he should be cited for inattentive driving. This case should be handled just like it would be for anyone else.
It is worth noting that the last update says the man who was hit and injured is 89 years old and is listed in critical condition.
