  1. I wonder if the construction situation was a factor in this. I avoid this intersection like the plague since the project began.

  2. I saw him motionless on the floor. Must be less than 21 years old. Was so relieved to see him move his legs. So glad he is in stable condition.

  3. I haven’t seen anything in the news other than your reporting, Doug. Do you know the injured motorcyclist’s condition? I’m hoping he or she is all right. I saw the mangled motorcycle this morning, in the intersection. It was terrible to see.
