  • Power/Telephone poles & Redwood Trees do NOT move when you run into them, period end of story!!! It’s much easier to avoid them if at all possible!!!

  • It looks like the driver hadn’t taken into account that “F” St is a dead end where that church is.
    That is about 100′ from where those two people were doing cannabis extraction in their car and caught themselves on fire.
    Does anyone if they have gotten out of the burn unit and how their recovery is progressing?

  • Is there anyone who can tell that what was the actual reason behind it?
