I live here. That this road is notorious for crashes would be news to me. He went thru the median and crashed on the other side, rolling ass over tea kettle.
This wasnâ€™t the road
I'm with you. I live right around the corner and have been driving down that exact road for 20 years. Unless you are not paying attention, it's not the road.
Lots of talk now in the media about how dangerous that road is. If you live ther you know what to expect, but I have to admit that you can easily build up speed on that road if you aren't paying attention..
Paying attention is the key phrase. That applies to any steep road anywhere.
Running this through my head, he was headed to the PV Country Club, it was early morning, so a few possibilities. One, he nodded off briefly, the road curved, and he hit the median. Two, he had a left turn coming up, he was late, maybe he was checking the GPS, took his eyes off the road a second, and whammo, hits the curb. Third, texting, speeding, and driving a car he was unfamiliar with.
I keep hearing how dangerous that road is, well maybe, but it is usually a very busy road. That in and of itself compounds the likelihood for crashes and fender benders. I myself have never seen an incident in over twenty years. The knuckleheads on Next Door (locals) seem to agree the danger is overstated, but again, they are familiar with the road.
The sheriff says it was an accident, which seems to be the case.
