Wondered what was holding traffic up on Huron, just west of Main this afternoon. Amazed at what I saw next.
A very old man (at least 80, by appearances) with a yellow shirt, khaki pants and suspenders, with a walker, was dragging bag of returnables with his back to traffic crossing Huron in the middle of the block, while moving at a tortoise’s pace.
Vehicle ahead of me pulls over, young man getting out to assist. I stopped, put my flashers on and waved at cars in next lane to yield.
He made it to the north side of Huron in one piece! No injuries, everybody breathed a sigh of relief!
