10:12 AM EST on February 9, 2009

Commenter Don Wiss gives this update on the condition of the man hit by a car at the intersection of Carroll and Eighth Avenue last week, and the circumstances of the crash:

I have learned that the 57 year old man is my next door neighbor on 1stStreet below 8th Ave. He commutes to work via the IRT. So he would havebeen walking north on 8th Ave at that time. I learned that he waswalking with his daughter and the car was going up Carroll Street veryfast. Apparently the car had the green light. Maybe talking with hisdaughter distracted him? He is in critical condition, but he is notdead.
