Joel Woods, 35, was attempting to enter his parked car on Forest Avenue by Pacific Grove Middle School at about noon when he was struck by a car driven by Deborah King, 51, of Monterey, according to Pacific Grove police.
King was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and is being held on $30,000 bail. Earlier reports that King was suspected of drunken driving were incorrect. The ongoing investigation may lead to more serious charges, said Cmdr. John Nyunt.
