Maybe 12/12/12 really is having some kind of strange affect on people. Between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Wednesday morning there were two separate incidents involving a car hitting a pedestrian on Clearwater Avenue in Kennewick. Literally within minutes and blocks of one another.

The first accident happened just after 10 a.m. as a man in his fifties was fatally hit between Big Smokes and Winco near the corner of Clearwater Avenue and Union Street.

Shortly after, a woman was hit by a truck while riding her bicycle. According to KNDU, witness' said the truck hit her while she was crossing Clearwater Avenue at the 4000 block in front of Les Schwab. The witness says the woman was pinned underneath the truck and dragged for a block. She was immediately taken to the hospital and her condition is unknown.
