Rush hour on Cadman Plaza West near Pierrepont Street was a mess yesterday evening when the woman driving this SUV paid absolutely no attention to the concrete median. That thing in the middle of the road. (The one you're not supposed to drive over?)
A large number of police emergency vehicles and fire engines surrounded the SUV, which was totally stuck and leaking gas or some other kind of fluid onto the median. Sand was poured onto the liquid, then everyone talked for a long while about what the heck to do next.
The driver stayed in the car -- probably not wanting all the bloggers and newspaper reporters (drawn like flies to honey) to get a close up.
