Yesterday a pedestrian in the crosswalk at Court and Washington Streets was struck by a vehicle and hospitalized with head injuries. Last year a man was killed by a vehicle at the same intersection.
The intersection is not a particularly busy one. The cause seems to be a rampant hurriedness and lack of care by drivers in the city in general, as we wrote in a posting in Ithaca Blog last week. We called for more diligent enforcement of traffic laws by the police, a call we are sorry to have to repeat so soon.
