Our thoughts to our friends in Cleveland

As you might expect, many people from our host organization and other friends of Gay Games 9 were present at "Dancin' in the Streets". As far as we know, none of them are among the victims of this "accident". From Cleveland.com:

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland police arrested a 34-year-old Lakewood man Sunday evening after he drove his car through a barricade at an outdoor festival on the city's West Side and injured four people, one of them fatally.

All four were taken to MetroHealth Medical Center. Two of them were in critical condition Sunday evening, but one of them, Mitchell Andelmo, 27, of Avon Lake, later died.

Timothy Spock was arrested and held on suspicion of operating a vehicle while impaired, among other charges, police said.

The accident happened at the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland's annual Dancin' In the Streets festival, an event that raises money for AIDS and HIV awareness. The festival was held on Clifton Avenue near West 117th Street.
