KNOCK-KNOCK STREET

THERE WAS A LITTLE GIRL PLAYING IN THE STREET. SHE WAS HIT BY A
CAR AND HER CLOTHING CAUGHT AND DRAGGED HER UNDERNEATH IT. SHE
TRIED TO POUND ON THE DOOR BUT THE DRIVER EITHER DIDN'T KNOW HE
HAD HIT HER OR ELSE HE JUST TOOK OFF. HER MOTHER HAPPENED TO COME
OUT ON THE PORCH JUST IN TIME TO SEE HER CHILD BEING DRAGGED
UNDERNEATH THE CAR. SHE CURSED THE DRIVER AND EVER SINCE WHEN YOU
DRIVE DOWN THAT STREET YOU CAN HEAR A KNOCKING SOUND AND THE ROAD
IS PERFECTLY LEVEL. THE STREET IS ON THE EAST SIDE OF DETROIT.
IT'S ON O'CONNOR BETWEEN MACK AND HARPER JUST WEST OF NINE MILE
ROAD.

Submitter comment: MR. MASI DOESN'T REMEMBER WHERE HE HEARD THIS STORY BUT HE HAS
BEEN DOWN THE STREET SEVERAL TIMES HIMSELF AND SAYS THAT IT REALLY
IS TRUE.
