Pedestrian Hit by Drunk Driver on Oktoberfest Opener, Mostly Unhurt
A near miss for a woman walking downtown this week-end during Oktoberfest in La Crosse. It was actually not a miss at all, but the woman managed to walk away relatively uninjured after getting clipped by a drunk driver coming out of a parking ramp. Police say Onalaska's Shawn Viner was solidly drunk when he left the third street ramp on Friday afternoon. He hit the woman in the back with his truck and kept right on driving. Cop eventually stopped him six blocks away. They say Viner blew a .255. His third drunk driving arrest.
