As my wife and I crossed El Cajon Blvd at Texas Street, today, we heard an ambulance approaching from behind. Cars pulled over, and I startled, realizing some came uncomfortably close to us—in the crosswalk! The emergency vehicle turned into the McDonald’s parking lot, which was before us. Sound of another siren brought my eyes to a firetruck coming from the other direction.
We waited for a couple more minutes until paramedics pulled a man from the backseat of a car. Balding hair and bulky build suggested someone as old as forties or fifties. We’ll never know, and I do hope he is in better condition nearly 12 hours later.
