We thought two friends had a fight and a guy kicked his friend out of the car or something
but I can tell from this picture maybe not.
The guy surprisingly got up, and we thought it's all over
The Parc staff came over to help him collect himself, and at one point a big guy in a chefs outfit came over and was trying to get the guy out of the street. Finally getting him on the sidewalk and talking to him.
Another cab, this time heading down 18th Street. I can't remember how this one ended. I'm sure there are security cameras if they need to see all the action. At the same time as focusing on the crazy guys, my friends and I are trying to watch the door of Barclay Prime for Beyonce and JayZ to arrive.
Then this cab hit the guy, spinning him around. Then a small maroon car came by, barely slowed down and hit him. The car continue on 18th Street with the man reeling in pain as he hit his head when he fell and it was loud. It really was horrific. (Still no cops on the scene. You can see on my twit pixs timeline that almost 15 minutes before they came with a fire truck.) I then focused back on the Barclay wondering why JayZ and Beyonce were 2 hrs late for their reservation, but knew they would come as there was 4 big black SUV's still outside the restaurant. By this time Fox 29 stopped by to hang with us. It's odd cause the TV stations almost never come to hang for celebrity sightings. But...
In the end JayZ and Beyonce never showed up to the Barclay Prime for dinner because an insider told me that JayZ didn't finish rehearsals til 11PM. Who was he supposed to meet Steve Stoute, who is responsible for first putting together the idea for #MadeinAmerica http://www.billboard.biz/bbbiz/industry/branding/steve-stoute-on-uniting-budweiser-jay-z-1007916952.story . There's no photo because I didn't recognize him. The other photographer did, but neither of us could come up with a name. I asked one of the Steve's friends and he told us, but Steve had pulled off already. Follow my twitter today for updates

@iPhillyChitChat I was at 10th & Spruce when you tweeted the second hit; I was walking that way and still got there before the ambulance.
