Interested, what happened, anyone know? Is the "person down" okay? That's a problematic intersection where cars do rolling stops --- but I am not saying that's what happened in this one.

Pedestrian was crossing, had earbuds in. Driver had not completely defrosted windows. Hit pedestrian as he was turning the corner. It was hard enough that the windshield cracked. The pedestrian was lying on the street and his lunch bag was all over the road. His eyes were open, but he was not responding to me. The driver was upset, called 911. While we were waiting the pedestrian started becoming a little more alert. Didn't speak. Weirdly tried to answer a phone call by instinct. That did not work out. Fire engine and ambulance showed up. Parents of pedestrian showed up from a local house and were upset/in shock. Pedestrian was put on restraining board by team of paramedics. Police showed up and started interviewing the driver and taking pictures etc. Police said I could go since I didn't witness the actual impact. I am not a medical doctor, but I don't think the pedestrian was okay.
