This "news story" is remarkably short of news basics: What happened? Who was involved? Why was there an accident here? Anyone ticketed? Any pedestrians have an account of the accident?

No would that be "Midtown" there, or maybe lower Midtown? I can't keep track of all the newly minted names for areas of town.

I think it's probably a smoother ride, driving on the sidewalk, than staying in the street when you consider the state of disrepair for Ann Arbor's roads. Unlike for the streets, there's a city ordinance that requires sidewalks be kept in good repair.

There was no Jello wrestling involved. I hope.

Between the skateboarders, bicyclers and now cars, when I'm trying to navigate the sidewalks of Ann Arbor, I feel like Ben Hur.
