Cleveland Hit and Run

I just stumbled across this video of a hit and run accident that happened recently on Public Square in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. Warning! this might not be suitable for young children. Proceed with Caution.

OUCH!!!  I have been reading that the pedestrian who was hit has been treated and released from the hospital, only suffering bruises, soreness, and a torn ligament in the knee where the car struck him. The police are still seeking the identity of the driver. This accident should have been another pedestrian traffic fatality, but this guy was fortunate enough to have someone from beyond watching over him. Apparently he was just leaving the new Horseshoe Casino and had a few drinks that evening (If he had this kind of luck inside the casino, he is probably retired somewhere tropical right now). It is obvious from the video that the guy was not paying attention to traffic, he just walks right into the crosswalk like he is invincible, and that all cars will simply yield to pedestrians. You need to be aware of your surroundings at all time, and not assume everyone else is paying attention to you. This type of accident can be easily avoided. I doubt that this guy will ever forget to look both ways before crossing the street ever again, but if he had read Roy and the Rhino and the cautionary tale it tells, he could have saved himself the pain and suffering he is more than likely feeling right now. Spread the word!!!   Pedestrian traffic accidents are preventable!!!    Sorry my posting schedule has been a little erratic lately, I just finished a hectic schedule at school and am right in the middle of a move. I am getting back on track and will be posting more great info on a regular basis. Be back soon...
