Other pedestrians on foot said many intersections in the city have changed recently. “Not knowing what to expect because you’re not warned, you’re not getting the warning,” said one neighbor. “One day you could come out and that street could be one way, the next day the pattern could change completely.”

A woman who lives near the street where the crash happened said she heard the commotion but did not know what happened. “I just heard a lot of sirens and ambulance and police coming down,” she said.
