of course it happened on my block

this is breaking news that hasn't even made it to the internet yet:

someone just drove through a store front about three-quarters of the way down the block south of my house. people milling around are saying "old lady" "u-turn" "accelerator instead of brake" but unless they actually saw, it's still speculation because the car is all the way inside the store--the back of the car is about ten feet in from the sidewalk it hit so hard--and they haven't gotten the driver out of the car yet.

I heard a loud crash and couldn't quite make up my mind what it was but when I heard the sirens all stopping outside I figured I'd go look and that's what I saw: a storefront window shattered and a car all the way inside the store. I didn't stick around to see how anyone was. there was nothing I could do and I'm not interested particularly in oogling injured people. I hope the person in the car survived. it went in frontwards, not backwards as so often seems to happen in these "wrong pedal" accidents.

they need to put the brake on the steering wheel or something. I mean this doesn't happen all that often but it happens, well, often enough, doesn't it?

anyway for details keep googling "san francisco news mission" until something comes up. the store front is at 21st street.

it's a good thing I stay inside here where it's safe. I mean, besides earthquakes and fires and whatever else could befall us back here. at least we're off the street.
