    C Line bus driver just said a pedestrian was hit in the crosswalk. Victim was awake and responsive but apparently has a broken leg. Buses being rerouted. Prayers for the woman who was hit.

      Glad she is okay, although a broken leg sounds like a ‘major injury’ to me.

    She was hit IN the crosswalk by a car that had stopped for her and flagged her to go. The stopped car was then rear-ended by a second car that crashed into the stopped car which slammed into and then drove over her. 😢

      Sounds like someone was on their phone.

        yup – 100% agree. It’s a major problem around here.

    A broken leg is major and she won’t know the extent of her injuries until she is examined by a doctor and over time in the week(s) to come.

    She is our daughter in law.  We were with her for T-Day yesterday and one thing she told us is a woman came up and held her hand while she was in terrible pain and waiting for the police, ambulance, and her husband to get there.  This amazing and thoughtful act of kindness meant the world to her.  She does not know the woman’s name but will be forever grateful for her presence & caring during a really scary time.

    Also John/Zark00. Politicians need to hear that driving while doing ANYTHING on a cell phone(on with 911 operator exempted) should be a MANDITORY negligent driving ticket.
