Saturday night 20 year old Lindsy Som went to a party on Tacoma’s East Side with her boyfriend. She hadn’t been out with her friends too much lately and they were happy to see her. Her new boyfriend and 2-year old daughter made hanging out with friends difficult. A little after 2:00am she argued with her boyfriend and left the party on foot running off onto Golden Given Road where she was struck and killed by a white pickup truck that did not stop making Som the second homicide of the year in the city of Tacoma.
I used to live near Golden Given Road. It’s a long straight road on the outskirts of Tacoma with few streetlights and no sidewalks. Given the time of the accident, the odds that the driver of the truck was drunk are good.
