  • Seems impossible that a head-on collision would only damage one of the vehicles! Hope that’s true and glad to hear the injuries are only minor.

    • It’s hard to tell from the scanner traffic but I’m wondering if they just clipped each other and one rolled.

        Looks that way. Head-ons are usually the worst, yet only minor injuries? One person trapped? Think you called it. Very lucky people if the story holds up.

  • Be careful on the road people. And weather conditions like this please drive 5 or 10 miles per hour slower it will reduce the risk of having an accident when you’re going the speed limit or a little above on wet roads more accidents tend to happen

      Exactly right. There seems to be some cultural Cali rule that you cannot adjust your driving to ambient conditions. Pedal to the metal no matter what.

      • Yeah, it’s all ego! You must drive faster than everyone else, and if someone else is catching up, under no circumstances, let them pass!

  • I was in Idaho 2 weeks ago during a snow storm , speed limit 80 mph on highway 84, people reduced speed 5 to 10 miles per hour and no wrecks

    • I wish it was more like that here! It could be storming and hailing and there’s still idiots who have to go 70!

  • Make every buy new cars that has extensive traction control and in climate sensors that limits speed, and they also meet california clean air act, get all these 2009 and older vehicles off the road, gross polluting climate changing jalopies

  • Please slow down. Please turn on your headlights.
