A 53-year-old Berkeley woman was hit in a crosswalk by a vehicle just after noon. She was knocked to the ground but declined transportation to the hospital, said Berkeley Police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer Coats. The woman had been crossing Spruce Street at Marin Avenue when the driver turned onto Spruce from Marin and hit her. Coats said the driver, a 67-year-old Kensington man, failed to yield to the woman in the crosswalk, which was the apparent cause of the collision.

A 78-year-old Berkeley man walking on Vine Street at about 4:30 p.m. was struck in the crosswalk by a vehicle at Martin Luther King Jr. Way, according to Coats. Coats said the driver, a 73-year-old Emeryville woman, had been southbound on Martin Luther King approaching Vine when she hit the man, who had been walking east in the crosswalk. The man was taken to Highland Hospital with serious injuries. Police do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision.

Thursday, Jan. 29

Neighbors around the 100 block of Fairlawn Drive have been concerned about two threatening notes left recently at the home of a local resident. On Jan. 28, the culprit “upturned a can of oil based paint on our car and left a note” on the car indicating frustration about noise caused by crying children. A previous anonymous letter making threats about the same situation was left in the home’s mailbox. A resident on Avenida wrote on Nextdoor that she “was shocked to see this. The very same thing happened to me a bit over 10 years ago – paint in a plastic bag placed on top of my car with a note threatening to burn down my house if my son did not stop playing his drums.” Berkeley police are investigating, according to emails circulating among neighbors.

There were two disturbance calls — at 9:38 a.m. at Shattuck Avenue, and at 10:30 a.m. in the 2900 block of Ellis Street — and a “second response” call at 11:37 p.m. in the 2300 block of College Avenue.

(According to neighbors, burglars have been repeatedly targeting the same home in the 1700 block of McGee — first several months ago and again recently — and have stolen multiple Apple laptops. Councilwoman Linda Maio called the incidents “highly disturbing,” and asked the city manager in late January about the potential for fingerprint analysis, according to an email circulated among neighbors.) … Continue reading »
