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.

Miami Commissionersfoolishly rejected a plan to fund their $50 Million share of the tunnel. A plan that would remove thousands of daily trucks, buses, and cars from the congested downtown streets somehow isn’t seen as a valuable enough asset worth of community development money. A word of advice to the commissioner who voted against the plan: try walking along these streets or open a sidewalk café at one of the new high-rises along portof Miami Biscayne Boulevardand you’ll quickly see what kind of benefit the tunnel will provide the neighborhood… on the Way? We certainly hope so…The proposed 31 story tower rising in the media and arts district would provide just that; Media and Arts. The tower would become a hub for local production providing ample recording studio space and other media oriented amenities. It may be too late to save NBC, ABC, or CBS from abandoning the district but, hey who knows maybe we can begin to recentralize ourselves again? Max Tower
