Remembering the Dead at a Dangerous Brooklyn Intersection -- Tillary and Adams Street

A sign has been installed to honor the memory of Ron Mortensen, run down by a car on Tillary and Adams Streets at the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge.

The sign was put up on the east side of the Adams Street intersection as part of the third annual Memorial Ride and Walk for People Killed by Cars. Loved ones attached a copy (shown above) to the lamppost that has served as a memorial to Mr. Mortensen since the April 13 accident.

Mortensen tried to make it across the dangerous intersection but tripped over his own sneakers.
