There was a nasty crash on Longwood Ave in Brookline this morning.  I showed 
up just after it happened.  It appeared that a pedestrian walked into the path 
of a biker too late for him to stop.  Both guys were in bad shape.  I stayed 
a minute, but realized there was nothing I could do that the police and 
ambulance couldn’t.

The biker was wearing a flame orange vest and the accident happened midway 
through the block not in an intersection/crosswalk.  
it can be a nasty stretch:  I stepped off in front of a bike here and will 
never forget it (near miss) and have had the same done to me...sorry to hear 
about it, and it only reinforces my greater fear of foot traffic than the wheeled 
variety (less predictable)
