By Lependorf & Silverstein on November 22, 2017

“I was crossing the street to get to my apartment on my way home from a friend’s comedy show when it happened. I had the right of way. The driver ran a red light. I saw him coming before it was too late to get out of the way….I turned my body at an angle at the last possible second, and felt about 23,000 pounds smash into me at 25 miles an hour.
