    I don’t know the situation but I have other comments.
    People walking across the street when the semaphore is Red – walking across the street in the middle of a block also – is a real problem in Mpls. The other day I was traveling on Olson Hwy towards downtown and I noticed two gentlemen walking across the west bound lane at Oliver. One of the gentlemen walked real fast to get in front of me I had to swerve out of the way as not to hit him.

    I walked by this incident on my way to the bus stop this morning just as the ambulance pulled up. It was horrific and needless to say and for a shocking lack of a better word, upsetting. I have been hoping all day that this guy makes it through. He hit the windshield with his head. It’s dark in this specific section of Franklin and vision is limited – the medics were working in the light of the headlights of the vehicles and the flashing fire-truck lights. An accident is an accident – it made no difference where or when this unfortunate victim was crossing the road (had he been on a bicycle with a legal lane to himself, he could have just as easily been hit). I can’t imagine what the driver is feeling right now…I just hope I check back to this site and they’ve updated that he’s okay.
