In a tragic repetition of the tragic accident just two days before merely two blocks away another resident of our neighborhood was struck down by a car. The Daily News covers the details of the accident. I think someone ought to look at statistics, but it seems to me that we have an awful lot of these accidents in this neighborhood. Pedestrian fatalities at the hands of careless and reckless drivers seem to be prevalent in our neighborhood. It's a sad way to end the year in the neighborhood with two unnecessary and wasteful fatalities. Our condolences to the families in these tragedies.
Police Sunday investigate a livery cab that struck and killed Barbara Tjornhom, 65, of Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
