So far there have been four separate vehicles using sirens responding from several different directions. ….hoping for the best for those involved.

Praying everyone makes it out alive. I’m here and there are at least 4 ambulances.

There’s another one that looks bad on Alhambra near Franklin Canyon

@L it’s not a competition….

We heard the four vehicles going to the scene, but we have not heard ANY sirens leaving the scene. That’s always either very good news……or very BAD news…..so I’m relieved to read Mayor’s update.

This is the second accident today on bailey rd. A suv rolled over heading east around 12:00.

Drivers really need to use caution coming down the hill. The road has many bumps that can tip a vehicle, if your not paying attention.

people rip down Bailey Road … even as they get close to the TWO little preschools (and Clayton Rd) … all day long, and at night too … a cop sitting near those two schools or those condos could write tickets all night long (8pm-midnight even)

@StoneyGRL, I’ve been saying the same for years. I have lived on Bailey Road for 10+ years. You would not believe the dangerous behavior I have seen. People FLY down this road at all hours of day and night. I have no idea if speed had anything to do with this accident. I do know that I could count on one hand the times in 10 years I have seen any police on this road appearing to do speed traps. Also, further down on Bailey, having to pull out on Myrtle onto Bailey is crazy! No visibility. I just avoid that turn altogether. Be careful out there. Maybe one day the police will post up and write some tickets to speeders on Bailey Road.

The things people do for work. Just sitting there writing tickets can be the most boring job on earth. Theres a call for work, Terrible
