Pedestrian safety becomes issue for mother
DeKALB – Amy Lantis was terrified when her 20-year-old daughter called her Tuesday evening crying after being struck by a dark red Chevrolet Venture.
Lantis’ pregnant daughter, Katy, was walking in the crosswalk of Lincoln Highway and Seventh Street in DeKalb, when the van’s headlight hit her from the left side between 5 and 6 p.m. Tuesday. Lantis said the driver and passenger, who were both white and appeared to be in their 60s, looked at Katy and continued driving.
“It’s disappointing to me that this was a couple in their 60s,” said Lantis. “I would’ve thought they would’ve come from a generation where no one would do something like that.”
