Memorial walk for Wedgwood victims

A crowd of around 150-200 people gathered at Top Pot Donuts and walked to the memorial to pay their respects. "I really wanted to thank the first responders," Steve said. "The support from the city has been incredible." Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, which hosted the event, estimated around 150 to 200 participated in the memorial walk. About a year ago, the group identified the intersection as problematic for pedestrians and cyclists. "Our roads really need to be designed for safety," said Andres Salomon, with Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. "It really should be a Seattle-wide discussion."

Downer and Nelson happened on the scene minutes after it occurred. "It's very difficult thing for a 13-year-old to process," said mother Libby Nelson. "We don't do enough in this clamp down on drunk driving."
