Or in the town blog, and probably in the newspaper when it comes out. Article here. And I quote:


Watertown fourteen-year-old struck while crossing the street
By Meghann Ackerman, staff writer

A Watertown man was cited after running into a girl crossing Common Street at 7:35 a.m. Tuesday.

According to two witnesses stopped at a red light in the northbound lane of Common Street, the girl, a 14-year-old from Watertown, was crossing the street in the crosswalk and when she got to the southbound lane a driver suddenly hit his brakes and skidded into her.

The driver, a 67-year-old Watertown man was cited for a red light violation and failure to yield to a pedestrian in the crosswalk.

When police and firefighters arrived on the scene, the girl was laying in the southbound lane and had cut on the back of her head and complained of elbow pain. She was taken to Children’s Hospital.


([sic] all over the place, obviously.)

Elayna has been informed that next time she wants to be in the newspaper, she should find a better way of doing it.

Thanks for the link, pixelfish!

Me too. My instruction to my son when we go to Pennsic is "Don't do anything you don't want me to read about on the front page of the Pennsic Independent.

Recently I've expanded that to not doing things he wouldn't want me to read about on the front page of the Boston Herald.

I am so glad she wasn't badly hurt.

Ack!

(Though I figured she must be okay now if you're joking about it.)

News organizations don't edit anymore. That's hard.

Eek! If you blogged about this I must've missed it! I'm assuming she's okay.

'([sic] all over the place, obviously.)'

Elayna could've written a more grammatical piece than that while still at the scene.

Hah! Probably.

Plus the first draft of an epic poem about it.

I'm so glad I wrote better as a newspaper writer-reporter. (I was a better writer than reporter, which is one reason I don't do that anymore. Anyway.)

I wonder if Elayna will remember any of us little people now that she's all big and famous. Can I get an autograph? :)

Wyrding Studios should make a one-of-a-kind piece out of the staples (once removed) and have a celebrity auction!

There are easier ways to get your 15 minutes, yeah. I totally missed that this happened (not reading LJ much, these days), but I'm glad she's doing okay.

OMG!

This is the first time I've been able to look at LiveJournal in like two weeks and I only just found this out now.

I hope she's okay! Or at least getting better quickly enough!
