UPDATE: Crash at Fauntleroy/Oregon

10:58 PM: Though the original callout was at 10:10 pm, we’ve just received multiple tips that a crash is still blocking Fauntleroy/Oregon. We’re off to look.

11:26 PM: SFD was gone – we’ll have to ask tomorrow about injuries (from the incident log, doesn’t look like anyone was taken to the hospital by medic unit) – and two vehicles had been moved to the sides of the road, both in the process of being towed, so the scene should be clearing.

    Bad intersection. A side rollover was covered on WSB recently. Lots of redlight running. I’ll be glad when Fauntleroy gets redone.

    Both passengers in the car that got t-boned by the red light runner were taken to the hospital.  One is our friend being treated right now but nothing serious. His passenger was in worse shape. We are finding out.

    I cannot count the number of times I’ve seen people run that red light over the years. I don’t know what it is about that particular intersection that makes people not see the light or not want to stop.

      I think it’s the distance to the other side. Same thing that “causes” peeps to block the box.

      I totally agree. There is something strange about that intersection that make people more prone to running the light

    I think norththbound  people get distracted by the always flashing, never red, “fire” signal just south of that intersection. Either that, or drivers are a bunch of self absorbed robots who can’t be trusted to pilot their vehicles. I have no plausible excuse for southbound light runners other than they believe they’re more important than the rules.

    I read this news article while on break at work earlier. I knew I needed to come home and to to the grocery store (QFC) for a few things, so I took Oregon coming home. Of course, sitting at the light, as it turns green, a white SUV comes barreling through the red light without a care to the world. This happens almost every single time I’m at this light, I’ve learned to wait at least 5 seconds before proceeding into the intersection because theres usually someone that is completely oblivious to the world and others around them.

Sorry, comment time is over.
