"Best of" to the pedestrian! Students not even back in town yet, walkers and bicyclers beware!

A car traveling westbound on Ninth Street clipped the man with the mirror of the vehicle just west of the intersection of Ninth and Ohio streets.

---kinda reads like "the man" wasn't in the crosswlk.
glad "the man" apparently didn't suffer serious level I trauma.

The city should study putting a crosswalk and stoplight like the ones at 12th & Tennessee around this intersection or a bit west on 9th. 9th street is too wide to cross safely and if you're trying to cross it's too far between the stoplights at 9th & Mississippi and 9th & Tennessee to expect people to walk all the way up or down the street to cross at a light.

I seem to recall several car-pedestrian accidents on this stretch of 9th. I see people running across the street to Jensen's liquor all the time and foot traffic should pick up once the new bakery opens.
