Keys woman charged with running over pedestrian at shopping center
A Tavernier woman who state troopers say ran over and killed a man is jailed on a felony charge of driving with a suspended license while causing a death.
Deborah Wilson, 54, who lists her occupation as a laborer, is being held in the Monroe County Detention Center in lieu of $150,000 bond.
The Florida Highway Patrol says she ran over George Hanses, 85 and also from Tavernier, in the Tavernier Towne shopping center at mile marker 91 as he crossed a walkway last Monday. She was driving a 2003 Ford.
Hanses, the 16th traffic fatality south of Florida City in 2012, was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he died.
County jail records show Wilson was arrested on July 4, 2005, for drunken driving and driving with a suspended license, and convicted that November. She also was arrested for probation violation on April 6, 2007.
