To Close for Comfort.

The local news seems to be reporting an awfull lot of motor vehicle accidents lately. When I took Brandy to the park on Saturday I saw two ambulances. I imagine them hurrying to a MVA. In fact, I almost ran into one because my view was obstructed and there was no siren.

Just this morning there was a RTD accident just around the corner. I am not sure this will be reported on the regular new (since no one died), butI am kinda getting afraid to go anywhere. I looked it up because the police had the corner blocked off this morning. Here is the report.

AURORA - A woman was taken to the hospital Wednesday morning after reportedly running into the intersection of Buckley Road and Mexico Avenue and into the path of an RTD bus. Investigators believe the bus had a green light while driving southbound on Buckley Road around 6:10 a.m. Wednesday, when witnesses say the pedestrian ran into the street. Aurora Police says the woman, whose identity has not been released, was conscious when they were taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay. Officers say the crash is under investigation, but it appears the woman was trying to catch another bus and ran out; not realizing another bus was coming. The bus driver will not be cited. Aurora Police also responded to another auto/pedestrian accident down the road at Airport Boulevard and 2nd Avenue. A 13-year-old boy was apparently crossing the street in a crosswalk, when a car turning left hit him. The driver was cited with failure to yield to a pedestrian. The boy was treated for bumps and bruises.


  1. It's enough to give you agoraphobia! It would be much safer to be a hermit, if you could stand the isolation.

  2. I am sure you know I had to look it up.

    Agyrophobia- Fear of streets or crossing the street

    Who knew?

  3. Agyrophibia! That is a cool word. I'll try to work it into a conversatio this week!

  4. If I were you two, I would work up some chionophobia. You wouldn't have to race across streets if it wasn't so cold and snowy out.

  5. Scary. I think that I will stay home with a blanket today.

  6. So far this season our snow levels are way below normal. But March is our snowy-est month, so by the end of the month I might develop a tempory fear of snow.
