Narmada Timsina, the young Kent woman who was critically injured in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident last week is recovering from her injuries at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle reports King5.com. Timsina, a refugee from Bhutan, was hit on State Route 515 in Kent at around 5:00am as she tried to cross the road to catch a bus to work.
According to the profile on King5, Timsina’s accident is not that uncommon. Timsina had lived in a refugee camp for 17 years and the rules of American roads were just not that familiar to her. Vanessa Reaves of World Relief was quoted as saying, “It’s really hard if you’re not growing up around cars, if you don’t drive yourself, there’s a lot we take for granted.”
The driver that hit Timsina has turned himself into to police.
