A 78 year old volunteer of the Huntsville Track Club was injured last Wednesday in a car accident when the driver of a Mercedes Benz struck him. The accident was caused simply because the driver didn’t see the man enter the crosswalk. Tragically, this crash could have been avoided had the driver simply paid more attention to the road. Thankfully, the injuries were not life threatening. For a man who has walked away from heart surgery clearing his 99% clogged arteries, he was simply too tough for the Mercedes.
