We had someone run down our mailbox yesterday, driving on the shoulder all the way down the street. Charlotte and several neighbors saw it happen. Could you post the enclosed attachment on Towndock for awhile?
I’m not looking for “revenge”, but this person should not be driving a car, whether it’s a medical problem or drunk/drugs. Plus not stopping, of course. Christa Brown was walking her dog not a minute before at the same spot. It could have been much worse.

For information leading to the person who ran down our mailbox at 6101 Raccoon Run, Horton’s Landing, and left the scene.
This occurred at approx. 10:15-10:30am Monday, June 4, with my wife and several neighbors looking on. The car is a charcoal (or dark color) Toyota Camry (or similar) fairly new model. The damage to the car will be a broken parking/headlight glass on the right side, and probably marks or dents on the bumper right in front of the right front tire. Possibly a woman with gray hair driving.
A police report has been filed with Dwaine Moore, Oriental Police.

This is for those who speed in our village. Twice in the last 4 days 2 different cars have “come after me” as I walk my dog. The car on Lupton did hit my dog, and didn’t stop.
I know who he is, because I saw him again on Monday. Luckily the dog’s left hind leg was only grazed, but bloodied, and immediately I took her to the vet.
4 days later approaching the Women’s Club from the Grocery store on Gilgo another car speeding did a funny serve, and I jumped for the ditch. I also know this car and will be watching out for it.
I will be taking license plates from now on, so be forewarned. Twice in 4 days is too much inattention to driving and people walking in the village.
