BRUNSWICK — Dillon Cassidy was skateboarding on Jordan Street when he had the close call.
Cassidy, 11, said he didn’t see the vehicle until the last moment, because he was focused on avoiding the path of another car.
“I heard the car coming, and it screeched to a stop,” Cassidy said this week. “It was only a couple feet from me.”
When he recognized the danger he was in, Cassidy was incapable of stopping the skateboard’s momentum, and so he took other action.
