I don’t know if its because I travel through the dowtown eastside a lot but I sure see many a dude lying injured in the street. Tonight around 8pm, Hastings Street was closed between Gore and Dunleavy. Lying in the street was some shirtless dude. What appeared to be his bicycle was next to him. On scene were police, firemen, and paramedics. It’s hard to say what happened to him as I was just driving by. It’s possible he just fell ill in the middle of the road but they don’t block off an entire block for things like that. The more likely story is that he got hit by another vehicle though it wasn’t readily apparent which vehicle that was. Maybe it was a hit and run.
I’ve been looking for a local news story about this but so far I can’t find anything. I bet this wasn’t newsworthy.
