    Just wanted to thank everyone who helped after the accident. The folks who brought out wet towels and ice, Jennifer who got me to the hospital, all the staff at the Emergency department especially the doctor who enjoys doing sutures and the police for their professional follow-up.
    Thanks Again and God Bless

    not to dismiss the charges, and thankful the driver did what she could to help but does anyone else find the streets of Petrolia have poor visibility for pedestrians? not sure how to fix it, but as a driver i am more stressed in Ptown watching for them, and as a pedestrian more leary to cross.
