Pedestrian/Bicycle Accident x 2 in Coral Springs

Two separate accidents in the past two days have left two students injured in Coral Springs.  Yesterday an 8-year-old girl was struck while bicycling to school by an SUV at Northwest 123rd Avenue and 29th Street near Westchester Elementary School. The student is expected to make a full recovery. No charges have been filed.

This morning 16-year-old Robert Brown was struck by a Toyota Camry while crossing the street on his way to school. Brown is currently in serious condition. No charges have been filed, as Brown was apparently crossing the street without a walk signal, and a green light for the oncoming motorist.

In related news, the blog Greater Greater Washington questions how the news media spins auto-related “accidents” and what that says about our culture.
