Past simple vs. past continuous
It was about 7 o' clock. I'm sure because I always finish with work at that time. When I  (come) out of the office building, it  (rain). A lot of people  (shop) or just  (enjoy) the walk. I  (open) my umbrella when I  (hear) a loud noise, which  (come) from the other side of the street. People  (start) running so I  (decide) to cross the street and see what the problem was. While I  (approach) the group of people, one man  (say): 'Thank God, he  (wear) a helmet!' I  (see) a boy  (rub) his head. Next to him, there  (be) a golf ball. Nobody  (know) which direction it  (come) from.
