I was walking home from walking a dog (Yes, I dogwalk to make extra cash) Thursday morning, when I saw this amidst flashing lights:
That’s right. It’s a car. That drove through a deli in Park Slope. Now let’s rewind about 30 minutes earlier before I had walked the dog.
I was walking to the person’s house a little before 9am that morning. Literally, it was probably 8:57am. I was famished. My stomach was cramping, I was so hungry. And I passed this deli…Deli In The Slope. I desperately wanted an egg sandwich, but I had promised to be there by 9am and didn’t want the poor dog waiting any longer to pee. Plus, the place didn’t look open, which I thought was odd for a Thursday morning. So I forged ahead…and it’s a good thing I did. If I hadn’t, it’s very likely that I would have been on the sidewalk at the time this car crashed through the window.
I don’t know all the details, except that the man driving had a heart attack when he crashed and is currently in critical condition. But I do know, according to one report, that he crashed at 9:02am. I missed this by a matter of minutes. Which is terrifying.
