Spokane Man Charged with Vehicular Assault After Hitting Two Teenage Girls

SPOKANE, Wash. - Two teenage girls were hit by a drunk driver over the weekend, both went to the hospital with minor injuries, and the suspect went to jail. Now one of the girls says she wants an apology.

15-year-old Nikki Hart says she was walking on 10th and Walnut on the South Hill Saturday with a friend when they were both hit by a truck.

"My friend doesn't remember what happened and I do and it just makes it, I think pretty scary," said Nikki.

Nikki Hart who came home from the hospital Tuesday, says her jaw is hurting, she still feels pain in her hip and neck, and is scraped up from head to toe.

Police say the two girls were hit by a drunk driver named Mark Bear Dog, who they say was also under the influence of marijuana and admitted to them he was driving drunk. According to witnesses, Bear Dog was driving his ford F-250 pickup, going about 30-35 mph and made no attempt to stop.

Nikki's parents say they hope this story will cause others to think twice before drinking and driving.

"I could have lost my daughter, and I had to go to the hospital seeing her strapped down. I had to be strong for her," said Nikki's mom, Kelly St.Paul.

Bear Dog was arrested on one count of vehicular assault.
