The St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl in downtown Delaware ended in horror last night after a pedestrian was struck by a car and seriously injured.
The accident occurred at the corner of Sandusky and William streets near midnight. Delaware Police are currently looking for the driver, who fled the scene laughing and pouring green beer down the shirt of a female passenger.
Downtown revelers say they were surprised that something so awful happened after 6 hours of drinking and debauchery.
“I was shocked to see that happen in downtown Delaware, especially after such a great day,” said resident Al Coholic, who attended the festivities with his wife and young children. “Two thousand of our best friends were down here drunk out of their minds, dancing, falling down, shaking their fists at the sky and cursing God. Most of the drunk drivers got home safe. It is too bad that one sober person had to run someone over and ruin all of the fun.”
Police say they are looking for a car with four wheels and front end damage. There may be a male passenger dressed in green passed out inside. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Delaware Police at (740) 203-1111.
