  1. The Richmond St. crash on Saturday was awful and I can’t believe it didn’t get more coverage. There could have easily been multiple people killed by the initial crash and the driver’s attempt to escape — it was a miracle that nobody was hurt. I was feet away, inside of a packed Vinoteca di Monica, where there was a brief panic of people running, screaming, not knowing whether this truck that was slamming its way through the street was trying to do harm. Also, very little police presence at the crash site, which is concerning since it could have been an attack. So glad to hear that the driver was detained — thank you to all that bravely chased him!
