Desperately Seeking the Good Samaritan on Ludlow

Posted on: April 30th, 2012 at 6:18 am by

Anyway, Missed Connections is seemingly where all the cool kids go to find those who made the truest of impressions. Or to track down Good Samaritans who helped a woman after a truck ran over her foot at the corner of Rivington and Ludlow. The event allegedly transpired on a recent Friday morning, and the author of this listing just wanted to bestow her proper thank yous…and utilize their witness testimony.

Hi- trying to find a super nice guy and girl in their early 30s (?) that helped me this morning after a TRUCK ran over my FOOT. I was on my bicycle.

I think you live or work on Ludlow- accident site was corner of Ludlow and Rivington.
If you are them, or know anything please email me. I want to give you both a proper thank you, and also the assholes that ran me over are denying it now and I need witnesses.

I know this sounds ridiculous, but I’d really appreciate it. Thank you!
