  1. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s not the safest neighborhood in town.

  2. I hope the injured person is OK.

    That’s a pretty short street to be traveling at a high rate of speed. I wonder if there are video cameras in the area that could be used to identify the vehicle?

  3. Nothing to see here folks, move along. There is nothing wrong with this neighborhood. It is simply a busy street in need of multiple cross walks and perhaps a few traffic lights. Were they in place, the operator would have seen this young fella trying to cross the street and would have yielded.
