  1. I feel terrible for this young teen. Thankfully he’s at least alive. I hope everything goes as good as possible. I was hit by a car at this same intersection two years ago on the same date. I can only imagine what the family and friends are going through right now. Please be very very careful whenever you cross that intersection as a car or a pedestrian.
