    Boy, thank God and G0d the driver wasn’t hurt! I can’t imagine how a driver of a two ton death mobile enclosed by steel would be injured when he or she hits a pedestrian. Thank you, Muskegon police and Fox 17, for ensuring us that the driver was not hurt in this incident and reminding us that driver lives matter much much more than pedestrians.
