Three Vehicle Traffic Collision Blocks One Lane at Broadway and West Hawthorne

Three vehicles collided about 10:15 a.m. on Broadway at West Hawthorne in Eureka. No one was injured. However, one lane is still blocked as of 10:30.

UPDATE 10:40 a.m.: Three vehicles were traveling south in the slow lane of Broadway. According to the Eureka Police Department, an eyewitness said there were people on the corner of West Hawthorne and Broadway that looked like they were going to cross Broadway. A silver Toyota Corolla stopped abruptly for the people. Then a red Mazda 3 was rear ended by green Toyota Camry. At this point, it is not clear if the Mazda hit the silver Corolla before or after they were rear-ended.



  • Please get these tweekers off the 101, this is ridiculous. Three car collision because of it.

  • Sounds like distracted driving or following too close. The formula for distance between cars is a car length for every 10 miles an hour of speed. Even if you try to leave space, someone will always fill it in! Everyone is in a big hurry. This is what it gets you!

  • I had a near miss on Broadway a few months ago myself. I had to slam on my brakes near Denny’s to keep from running over a tweak that had wandered onto the road. Both lanes were stopped, and the guy in the car next to me got out and started yelling at him to get out of the road. The tweakster was so fucked up that he just stood there staring at him with his mouth hanging open. Another tweak ran up to him and pulled him back to the sidewalk. It’s one thing to have to watch for little kids, but this is pure insanity.

  • Thinking allowed

    Just last week a man, accompanied by a woman pushing a child in a stroller,walked out in front of my truck on Broadway at Hawthorne. The man and woman were not at a corner. They were literally in the middle of the intersection with the man holding his hand up as if he was directing people to stop. In the middle of Broadway for Pete’s sake.

    Luckily for me the woman pushed the stroller over towards the farthest sidewalk corner while the idiot man just stood there smack in the middle of the streets. I was able to drive around him once the woman and child made it to the corner.

    I can’t help but wonder if this accident was caused by the same idiots doing the same thing.

  • We need to outfit our vehicles with train horns that are so loud that these tweakers will piss themselves next time they jump in front if us. Wonder who locally installs something like that.

  • Yes it was f#_57tweekers I was right behind last car one walked right in front t of truck it stopped then the group started to bolt arcoss other lane and actually just stood there when wrecked happened . Almost on top of them .Then they actually waited to cross still happens to me almost daily.
