“I was just going to get more coffee and drive back to my house and start my day,’’ Langford said. “All of a sudden, wham!" - Tribune Article quote.
Larry tells the story in his own words:
"I was stopped at a light at 59th Street and Union Ave. after six in the morning, closer to seven, when I heard the sound of tires on wet pavement. I thought, oh-oh, and looked up.’’ "I saw the car leave the scene, and stop close by. I get out of the car and ask if he's ok. He mumbles back to me, saying "yeah". "He didn’t apologize, or ask if I was all right, he wasn’t looking at me. He just kept looking at his car.’’ "So, I ask this guy for his drivers license and ask if he has insurance. He told me the car was stolen."
Langford: "You stole it?"
At this point, Langford tells that the driver walked away. The driver then started to run, and left the car behind.
Chicago-One News spoke to Larry Langford this morning on his way into the office after buying his morning coffee. Anyone in the Chicago media business, and who eventually covers police & fire department incidents gets to know Larry very quickly. Larry stated to Chicago-One that he's a little sore, but is otherwise doing well.
Larry is typically all - go, no - stop, and carries with him a spirit of helpfulness, is generally very jovial and easy to get along with. Get well soon, Larry!
