Drunk Driver Hits Two Women in Crosswalk
Two women in La Crosse are probably lucky to be alive after getting hit in a crosswalk over the week-end. Police say the women were walking across the street at the corner of Pearl and third streets downtown when they got hit by a guy in an out of control pick-up. The driver: Paul Vick, 27 year-old from Watertown. Police say he drunkenly hit a couple of parked cars as he was quickly trying to drive away from a bar. Apparently caused some trouble there. The bar's bouncer hauled Vick out of his pick-up after he sent the two women in the crosswalk flying. The bar's owner held Vick down until cops got there. Vick faces a number of charges.
