On Aug. 17, 2012, Ellen Meyers, a Boerum Hill resident, was crossing Pacific Street at Court when a car heading west on Pacific brushed her leashed puppy, Mambo. By the time she reached the veterinarian across the street, the dog had died in her arms.
“The car didn’t stop, although people started yelling,” Meyers reported. “I don’t think the driver ever saw us.”
This past July, Bob Dehler had a close call with another speeding vehicle at the same intersection, jumping out of the way when he saw disaster heading toward him.
