Been in Utah for work...bad news in Brooklyn

I've been in sunny Utah working and snowboarding...

Got some bad news from Brooklyn,

BROOKLYN: BOY STRUCK BY CAR A 13-year-old riding his bike in Brownsville
yesterday was struck and critically injured by a sport utility vehicle
whose driver was intoxicated, the police said. The boy, who was
identified by his family as Carlyon Charles, was riding on Saratoga
Avenue between Blake and Dumont Avenues about 5:20 p.m. when he was
struck by a white Lexus RX300. Carlyon was taken to Brookdale Hospital,
where he was treated for head injuries. The police arrested the driver,
whom they did not identify, and charged him with driving while
intoxicated. Michelle O'Donnell (NYT)

Keep fighting the good fight everyone.

And Brittany, if you have more information on Carlton's condition or an update please post.

people need to slow down
put down the cell phone
use the blackberry when out of the car
and of course
sober up before getting behind the wheel
the consequences are clearly too great
