How many accidents has it been on this corner this year? 5? 6? It’s time to fix the road.

@ the Professor~!~~I SOOOO AGREE< thank god they missed the Fire Hydrant!! does anyone know if it was a hit & run??

….and now would the PG&E crews and heavy equipment please boogie on over to Concord Boulevard and move their poles out of the STREET?

We’re going on three years of lame-brained excuses now. Why does City not take action to bring PGE and dangerous conditions under compliance? Plus, we paid for an extra lane there, and now we’d really like to use it!

If we’re going to complain about lighting…what’s with the strobe light on the side of the 7/11 in Dana Plaza? My neighbor almost had a seizure looking at it. (I know…don’t look) It’s been like this for months!

They questioned two young men, one in dark blue shirt, Other in white wifebeater. One was taken away in an ambulance, the other went home with parent?

I live across the street from the incident. The police mentioned that it was two young teens racing on Willow Pass Road. The driver of the Black Mercedes was taken to the hospital and the driver of the Audi fleed by foot but was immediately apprehended, and taken in to custody with no injuries. Grateful no one was taking a walk, that is a busy intersection where families like to bike ride and walk around. Also grateful they didn’t crash into the gas station…
