Another Traffic Incident on Cricket Ave.
Saturday around 10:30 I was startled by a loud noise while watching "The Mist" on D.V.D. The Movie primary takes place in a Grocery Store. The loud noise unfortunately sounded like metal shelves crashing. oooo boy ...If I would have opened my front door, and it would had been foggy I may have stayed inside.
At the corner of Cricket and Normandy I saw a black pick-up truck on my neighbors sidewalk, and the stop sign broken off. I quickly went back inside and dialed 911. Then I walked down to the corner, and saw a gentleman standing by the driver's window, and someone else in the vehicle. I called out from across the street, and asked if anyone was hurt. Strangely he did not answer, but the driver was ackwardly attempting to get his truck in reverse. I then looked at the license plate, and decided it was best to back away. I walked back up to my house to check on my vehicle that was parked in the street. The driver may not have been able to turn a corner, but did manage to miss my car. Then two Haverford Police Cars had arrived. The gentleman that was at the window of the car must have been walking by on Cricket, because after he spoke to the police he walked up by my house. I then asked the question of the gentleman again.. this time he did respond...He's tanked was his response, and continue walking up the street. This is the third drunken driver crash on Cricket Ave. on either side of my house in recent years.
I did not like the ending of the Movie, but fortunately; this time once again, no one on Cricket Ave. was hurt. These events however are as scary as the Movie.
Thanks to the Haverford Police Force for responding so quickly so this gentleman was stopped before he could do anymore damage.
