I was walking to my bus stop, on my way home this evening. I had perhaps twenty feet to go from the stop when I heard some tires skidding to my right. I looked over and saw a small SUV smash into the rear of another SUV that had been stopped. It was your classic rear-ender. I didn’t see what happened before I heard the tires skidding but it seems like a reasonable guess that the first SUV braked way too late. The rear of the second SUV was all smashed in and the front of first SUV wasn’t in great shape either.
Luckily, it didn’t seem like either driver was hurt as both jumped out immediately to start taking pictures and exchanging information. The dude that got hit seemed really annoyed but he was not overtly angry at the person who hit him. This was no small fender bender though and I predict thousands of dollars in expensive repairs for both cars.
There was no time to gawk any further for me however, as my bus pretty much arrived less than a minute after the crash happened. I wouldn’t say this particular intersection is accident prone but this isn’t the first time I’ve come across an accident in this exact same location.
