35th blocked off

35th is blocked off from Myrtle to Webster. Police officers are in the street investigating something; there was a medic call at Fire Station 37 (inside the blocked-off zone) earlier, but no details.

    I saw a bit of the 11:00 O’clock news on Ch. 7.

    Apparently, a neighborhood man in his ’70’s was hit by an SUV. The driver stopped, and called the incident in to 911 on their cell. He’s at Harborview, condition unkown.

    I mentioned he’s a neighborhood man, but not sure if he actually has a place to live there. He was described as always carrying a couple of large trash(?) bags around, of his posessions. However, he’s hung around the area for quite some time, and the neighbors are, understandibly, upset.

    A lady they talked to on the news, said that ironically, she’d spoken to him for the first time earlier in the day, when she’s seen him around for several years.

    Thanks … we were out of WS when we heard about this and drove there immediately upon returning to this side of the bridge; saw that station’s van leaving so thought we might find something on their website when we got home, but nothing there. Suspected it involved somebody having been hit, when we saw the police using their surveying-type equipment to take measurements. Been listening to the scanners ever since and what a crazy night out there (to be expected with all the Halloween parties), including a high-speed crash involving a traffic circle in Arbor Heights and a search for someone who apparently turned up in Fauntleroy Park.

    Ah, that (Arbor Heights crash & discovery in Fauntleroy Park) explains why I slept fitfully! i thought I was just having weird dreams until, at about 4 this morning I heard someone in front of my house talking to someone else about it. Very bizarre. Noise around here ususally consists of racoons fighting over a dog bowl. Thanks, WSB!!

    Now, Ch. 5 News has been reporting that it was a woman, and she was not in a crosswalk.

    It’s been just a little blurb during their newsbreifs, or whatever, so no more detail than that.

    And now, Ch. 4 is corroberating with last nights version that it’s a man in his ’70’s, known to the neighborhood.

    I had a hunch Ch. 5 was wrong, since 7 last night had an actual interview with someone.

    Mr. Clement who died Saturday night was an educator who, with Miss Cochran, owned and operated The Little Folk Montesory School in the 1970s.

    Mr. Clement was a long time resident and lived on 34th S.W near the accident. The “garbage bags” that he carried was his food and merchandise purchased regularly from the Pike Place Market and other sources downtown. He certainly was NOT homeless as some hinted by mention of “garbage bags”. He was a responsible home owner. He frequently rode the #21 bus to downtown.

    My son, Kennedy J.F. Gazaway attended Little Folk Montesory school on California avenue in the 1970s.

    My apologies for insinuating Mr. Clement was homeless.

    It was a careless and unfortunate assumption on my part from what I picked up from the original news story I saw. I seem to remember the story indicating that he was often seen around the neighborhood, but no one knew exactly where he lived.

    I may have also been impaired by a foggy mind from posting after a middle of the night nature call.

    My condolences to all that knew and loved him.


Sorry, comment time is over.
