    Just curious, what was the cause of that accident? It is a very dangerous intersection for pedestrians- I was almost run over there a couple weeks ago.

      His tires were worn and he was in need of new ones. He didn’t have good traction- with the rain lately, the roads are slick… he spun out and lost control.

Sorry, comment time is over.
