Good citizen

On February 20 I parked beside Oglow’s building on 6th Street. There is a sign there allowing 15 minute parking. My car was parked past the sign close to the building. I was in the thrift store about 10 minutes. When I came out there was a police officer talking to a gentleman about damage done to my car. The man had seen the car being hit by an M.T.I. semi-truck which had come from downtown, turning left toward the high school.

The bumper and left taillight were damaged and my car was pushed nine feet from where I had parked it. The trainer and driver didn’t even know they had hit me. I was lucky the gentleman had seen this happen.
