Our preparations for Ivo's party have been delayed by a car-vs-pedestrian accident in front of our house. A neighbor - who loree just met this afternoon - was hit by a lady in a CRV. He's been taken to Harborview, and was considered to be in critical condition as of then. A guy from channel 4 is out there, presumably got some basic shots, talked with one of the cops, conveyed some of it back to us. The entire intersection has been crime-scene-taped off. The lady and her car are still there. His hat is still laying on the ground, behind the car. loree is waiting for the cops to come ask her some questions.
