Friday Memo: Vehicles hit pedestrians … schools official’s sentencing … Dave’s Killer Bread founder arrested

Two pedestrians were struck by vehicles yesterday. One was killed while crossing the street in Shoreline. The other was seriously injured on Capitol Hill in Seattle last night. What exactly happened in that case is still being investigated.

Former Seattle Public Schools official Silas Potter Jr. is scheduled to be sentenced today after pleading guilty in April to 36 counts of theft, admitting he stole from taxpayers during his stint as head of the Seattle school district’s minority-contracting program.

Authorities say the founder of Dave’s Killer Bread, a popular Northwest brand,  has been arrested after reportedly ramming his car into some sheriff’s cruisers in Oregon, according to KING5.

Counterfeit air bags: Seriously? A guy in Moxee, which is southeast of Yakima, has been sentenced to more than two years in prison after pleading guilty to selling counterfeit air bags. He sold the bogus bags on the Internet. They were installed on some 2,000 vehicles. There are no reports of deaths or injuries as a result of the bags. The man took in some $441,000 from his scam, the Yakima Herald-Republic reports.

Weather: Rain, showers and a chance of rain. We said yesterday there might be some sun on Saturday, but we lied. Sorry.
