Vehicle goes sideways on Harbor Avenue

Thanks to Stephanie for the photo and tip about a crash in the 1900 block of Harbor Avenue SW. While sideways or upside-down crashes are often dispatched as “rescue” calls, this one was not, according to the 911 log, which shows SFD has already closed out the call, with no medic unit sent, so apparently no serious injuries.

    While I have no info about the cause of this accident, I’m surprised there are not more (or more pedestrian/motorized vehicle encounters) on Harbor and Beach Drive. Was walking down there yesterday afternoon/eve and couldn’t believe the excessive speeds at which some people were driving. I had an out of town guest with me who was astounded there wasn’t some type of speed control mechanism in place. We witnessed multiple incidents of motorcyclists, and car drivers – some “Fast and Furious” street racer wannabes, along with some others who just didn’t seem to care who they were endangering – flying by at speeds that were very dangerous, not just 5 or 10 mph too fast, but upwards of 20+ mph above the speed limit.  One motorcycle whipped around a car that was stopped for someone in a crosswalk. I wonder if some of the school zone type enforcement cameras might be helpful to deter this?

     While I loathe them, what about speed bumps? Less spendy than cameras.

    That was my kid.  Raised here in this great open non-trump state.  His best friend driving  was a young kid exhausted from finals.  Just played basketball.  The unfortunate lesson learned is please do not drive when you are sleepy.  It can happen that fast.  They both walked away.  not speeding. Don’t hate. It was an accident. The tree lives.

Sorry, comment time is over.
