DALLAS -- Work on improvements to the 800 and 900 blocks of Main Street in Dallas was proceeding well Friday when what could have been a tragic accident happened.
"Late Friday afternoon we had a van crash into the site, very scary," Dallas City Manager Ron Foggin said Monday. "Luckily, nobody was hurt."
At least not seriously; one of the workers had his foot run over by the van that crashed into sidewalk rubble at the corner of Main and Court streets. The driver of the van, Carolyn Satter, was cited on charges of reckless driving and reckless endangerment with additional charges pending.
