Man describes being hit by car

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie man reported being struck this week by a car driven by a girl called “Tank.”

Police were notified of the assault when victim Howard Nesmith went to Colquitt Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Nesmith, of the 900 block of First Street Southeast, told police that he was lying down at about 11 p.m. Wednesday when his daughter came in and reported that she had been assaulted.

Nesmith told police that when he walked outside the driver of a Ford Crown Victoria, whom he knows only as “Tank,” revved the engine and drove toward him. The car hit Nesmith in the legs and picked him up onto the hood of the car.

The driver then left, police said.

Nesmith was treated at Colquitt Regional Medical Center and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
