This is the third pedestrian incident in less than a week resulting in 5 people injured
The incident report from the Monroe Police Department identified the two victims in Tuesday night’s pedestrian accident as Matthew Louviere, 42, and Alecia Hooks, 27, both of Loganville. They were hit by a 2010 Ford Focus driven by Alicia Bailey, 42, of Monroe, as they were crossing W. Spring Street in front of Walmart at about 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday night, April 20, 2021. The driver was not injured. Both the victims were transported by Walton EMS to Piedmont Athens. Louviere said his injuries were minor but Hooks, who is his fiance, received more head trauma and, as a result, they were transported to the hospital in Athens. However, he believed she would be able to be released today.
First responders arrived to find the female victim lying in the roadway and the male victim on the side of the street. The windshield on the vehicle was severely cracked and reportedly appeared to have female hair within the cracks. The vehicle was towed.
According to the report, both the driver and the pedestrians claimed to have the green light giving them the right of way. There were no witnesses present but police have listed the pedestrians as being at fault due to physical evidence at the scene, such as placement of shoes and glasses. However, no citations were issued.
No drugs or alcohol were listed as contributing factors.
