On Monday, August 30, at around 5:00 p.m., a Navy man attempted to back his jeep out of its parking spot in the 4700 block of Niagara Avenue alley. The serviceman was startled to notice a man lying immobile and unresponsive underneath his automobile. Upon further inspection, it was determined that the injured man was a common alley visitor who is well known to many longtime neighbors.
The victim appeared extremely inebriated and had cuts and bruises on him, so concerned residents called 911. A fire truck and ambulance responded and after a brief evaluation, the victim was loaded onto a gurney for a trip to the hospital for further observation.
