#OccupyLA Artist Hit by Car in Beverly Hills
Source: CrooksandLiars - OccupyAmerica

Late Wednesday evening, a member of Occupy LA was struck by a car as he rode his bicycle to cross a Beverly Hills street at a crosswalk. Following the Livestream, and statements from fellow occupiers, I've gathered that his name is "Will," and that he is one of the group's artists who has been with that occupy group since its beginning.

I'm not certain where the group was coming from, but it seems they had been at either a march or protest as they had signs, and at least one person was wearing a Guy Fawkes mask. After about a minute into the video, you can hear a sound that was likely the impact, and those on foot catch up to where Will landed in the road with his mangled bike not far away.

More with video at the link.

2. Occupy Boston was confined to a tiny median strip on a very busy road. I was always
worried that one of the occupiers would accidentally get pushed off the strip and get hit by a car. They go pretty fast there.
