I heard the ๐Ÿšจ Sirens go off for this, as I so frequently do. Living on East Young, but it's a common enough of an occurrence that I never place much thought into it !! Prayers for the injured man, and his family. As if there wasn't enough to deal with already. Hope he recovers quickly โ˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ‘€
