Unified Government Candidate Charged with Striking 4 Students with Her Vehicle

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A woman running for the board that governs the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas has been charged with hitting four high school students with her car.  The Wyandotte County prosecutor's office says 38-year-old Tamika Pledger of Kansas City, Kansas was charged Sunday with four counts of reckless aggravated battery. The teens sustained serious injuries in Friday's crash near a community center.  Pledger is jailed on $50,000 bond. A prosecutor's office spokesman didn't immediately respond to an email from the Associated Press asking whether Pledger had an attorney.  The prosecutor's office said in a written statement that Pledger has filed for a seat on the Unified Government's Board of Commissioners. The seat has been empty since Mark Holland vacated it when he was elected mayor in 2013.
