Yesterday our pawrents went for a long run without us. Mom said later she was VERY glad we were NOT with them!
Mom and dad were running uphill. Dad was running (east) in a crosswalk and mom was a few car lengths behind him. Mom was looking down and heard a loud noise so she looked up just in time to see dad fall to the ground
A car facing south was making a right turn. The driver was looking to her left (east) and did not look to her right before pulling out to make her right turn. If she had looked, she would have seen dad.
Mom called 9-1-1 and 4 police cars came.
An ambulance & paramedics came too. They patched up dad's bleeding elbow.
This picture was taken when they got home.
This is the driver who hit dad.
Mom says the way this accident happened is a very common thing for drivers to do. Looking left for an opening in traffic and then pulling out without looking to their right where they don't expect anyone to be. Please, please, please be a cautious and defensive driver!

Pee Ess - Dad is feeling good today (with abrasions). A live stream is on mom's Facebook page but she can't get it copied off from Facebook so you have to go there to see it (and send a friend request since it isn't public).
