  • Corrections: Only 1 child in the car. The ‘adjacent apartment’ is a small design business that had to evacuate a dozen employees. Damage ended up only being cosmetic.

    The driver is reported to have had a stroke.

    There’s a decent amount of foot traffic on this block at that time of day, so it’s a miracle no one was killed. When I saw the news van and Georgia shut down between Gallatin and Ingraham, I assumed a homicide scene, so I guess this was relatively better news?

  • Apparently people are taking the #BoycottHamilton movement a little too seriously.
