Hit by a truck; saved by a random stranger!

Posted on Mon, May 7, 2012 at 9:28 AM

At lunch time on Friday, May 4, I was crossing Birmingham St (close to Spring Garden), wearing a bright orange hat and red raincoat. To my surprise, a truck decided to back up half way the length of the street to find a parking spot and hit me from behind. I had no idea what was going on, but you screamed at the driver to stop. Thank you soooo much for that! I was too shell-shocked to say thank you. Thank you, thank you! The incident could have been a lot worse. —Shell-Shocked Pedestrian
