My theory is that since there are so many medical buildings in Palos Heights, it draws the elderly and sick to our hood. And while they are here seeking medical care, they run errands and wreak havoc upon the poor unsuspecting buildings. All jokes aside, there does actually seem to be a higher than normal "car crashing into buildings" around here. I can think of at least 10 since we moved here 7 years ago. I lived in the city for 15years before that do not ever remember hearing about stuff like this on such a frequent level.

Let me add, Fitsimmons medical supply and just to stick up for the seniors a little bit, the person who hit Aurelios was a young girl, not illegal or old!
