  • That’s quite the impact, brick and flip. What’s the speed through there? Hope everyone is ok

  • Well I’m sitting g at the DMV in eureka, and as I’m reading about this crash, the Men’s bathroom door opened, a tall fat man came out and behind him I could see his girlfriend pulling up her pants as the door shuts to the men’s bathroom.
    Strange, but not strange at all in a sea of tweekers and neck tatts,…
    There are no cameras at the DMV and surely this is a sport to the freaky ones,..
    I think my story is more interesting than another daily crash in eureka,..

    • I’m sure that your story, while amusing, did not include injuries, or severely impacted traffic on a main route of travel in Eureka.

    • Really? Someone is going to get that phone call that their love one has been in an accident and hurt and you think you’re being cute? People like you make me ashamed that I called Eureka home for over 30 years. Have some compassion for crying out loud.

  • So the Toyota got the ticket?

  • Good Photo journalism, a pic. is worth a thousand words. Must have used a 200mm lens to get close, without getting in the way.
