Victim of Carroll Street Crash in Critical Condition

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 1st
Street below 8th Ave. He commutes to work via the IRT. So he would have
been walking north on 8th Ave at that time. I learned that he was
walking with his daughter and the car was going up Carroll Street very
fast. Apparently the car had the green light. Maybe talking with his
daughter distracted him? He is in critical condition, but he is not
dead.
