Vehicle Collision in Front of the Concord Police Department

December 28, 2012 10:49 am · 15 comments


A minor-injury multiple-vehicle collision snarled traffic this morning on Galindo, in front of the Concord Police Department.

Red light runner? Speeder? Texter? Drinker? The cause of the crash hasn’t been determined, it’s all still under investigation.

The road should be clear by 11am.

Thanks to Andre for the top picture and John for the picture on the bottom!

I drove by just after it happened, Sarah’s right.

All the drivers were texting, speeding, not paying attention, and had no insurance. And our DA, Mark Peterson won’t do anything about it because David Rosen got away with murder. it’s a travesty of justice!

That intersection has such poorly-timed lights.

Coming Westbound from Oak St onto Laguna (or turning left onto Galindo Southbound), you can have a green light as you pass the crosswalk that turns red before you’ve gotten through the intersection.

Plus, the green in that direction is often far too short for the number of cars backed up from the BART station, so people end up blowing through the intersection at top speeds (which are quite unsafe, given the pedestrians and the curves for both “straight” and left-turn traffic) with a yellow or even red before they’ve gotten through the first crosswalk. Yes, it’s illegal, but they do it. With a longer yellow (and maybe a longer green when necessary), there might be fewer red-light runners.

Honestly, I’m surprised there aren’t more accidents there.

Maybe there was a perp walk that caught their attention.

Light when you are driving on Laguna is very fast, therefore the Truck ran the Light.

The Mayor mentioned that this accident was still under investigation. How long does it take for a full investigation of an accident? I still have not heard the outcome of the skateboard rider that was killed on Monument. That accident happened earlier this month.

@Claycord court. You’re an idiot! DA Peterson is better than the last one. The dust hasn’t even settled and you’re trashing him.
