Pedestrian Pinball in Hoboken
Another pedestrian bopped by auto in Hoboken – who’s at fault?
Earlier this morning – yet another pedestrian was hit by a car. This time at 1st & Jackson Streets (not too far from Mayor Zimmer’s house.)
The resident who sent this photo in was the one who phoned police – and he said ambulatory aid arrived to the scene “very VERY quickly,” so hats off to our volunteer ambulance crew once again.
The man seemed to be OK at best – while he was face down on the street, his legs were moving – so it appears he wasn’t paralyzed. The woman driving the grey Honda Civic was middle-aged. We’re unsure of the exact cause, whether it was entitled “iMeMeMe” pedestrian, or “LMAO” driver. Who knows, maybe it boils down to who forgot their cup of coffee this morning.
Sooner or later – we might as well paint “pedestrian face-plant lanes” instead of bike lanes!
