Dad Hit With Car

MAY 19--Driving without her glasses, a 21-year-old Florida woman early today struck a pedestrian walking on the side of the road. But it was only until Brittanie Wagner was pulled over by a cop for leaving the scene of an accident, that she realized the victim was her own father, according to a police report.

Wagner told investigators that she initially thought she hit “an animal or a garbage can” while driving along a Bradenton street around 1 AM. But when her passenger said that a person was actually struck, Wagner arrived at an unfortunate realization.

“Oh my God I hit my Dad,” Wagner exclaimed to her friend.

Wagner, pictured in the mug shot at right, told cops that she came to that conclusion “not because she recognized him but because she knows he always walks on that particular roadway.” According to Wagner’s fiancé, Kevin Rodriguez, she was serving as designated driver for a friend who was intoxicated. Rodriguez added that victim Oliver Wagner, 42, frequently walks along the roadway to a billiards hall where he shoots pool.

Oliver Wagner, who was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries, was helping to arrange his daughter’s release this afternoon from the Manatee County jail, said Rodriguez.

A sheriff’s deputy noted that the accident left the car Wagner was driving with a “web shaped crack on the passenger side of the windshield” and a broken rear view mirror. In addition to the leaving the scene of an accident count, Wagner was charged with failing to obey a restriction on her driver’s license requiring her to wear eyeglasses while operating a motor vehicle.

Bradentucky, Murdertee County Flawduh. How many more of these stories can come from my hometown?
She has a "Palin 2012" bumper sticker on her car.
*cue song from The Beach Boys* "And we'll have fun fun fun till daddy took the T-Bird awaaay!"
She looks older than 21 (old looking neck). Any other normal daughter should be crying or at least frowning about hitting her dad. I wonder why she wasn't given a sobriety test. What is it with people smiling for their mug shot? Do they think it will lead to their big break in Hollywood, someday? There are way too many narcissists among us, lately.
Too many bigots as well.
Yes, there ARE too many bigots who can't tolerate anyone who disagrees with them and they show their hypocrisy by calling others that and sometimes along with other nasty insults.
Hypocrite (plural hypocrites) [noun]. - Someone who practices hypocrisy, who pretends to hold beliefs, or whose actions are not consistent with their claimed beliefs. [from early 13th c.]
Dad... can I borrow some money to fix the dent in the car?
"Young lady, you are SOOOO grounded." Seriously, TSG: add the state as a tag. This Florida thing is getting out of hand. I love the look on her face; she is not going to let this little setback ruin her day.
