No Charges Filed In Hit And Run Incident Outside Goodyear Plant

A follow up tonight on the alleged hit-and-run incident at the Goodyear plant last night. No charges have been filed today.

As we reported last night, the man driving the vehicle in question, is one of only two union members who have crossed the picket line during the seven week strike.

Strikers say they were picketing, when a crew from inside got off work. According to union procedure, they can stop cars up to 30 seconds before letting them through. They say every night, as traffic backs up, some heated words are exchanged. They say last night those words turned to action. Union members say a worker hit a picketer with his side view mirror, then threatened to run the rest of them over.

The injured picketer was taken to the hospital, but was released a short time later.
