Thanks to Brent for the pictures of a rollover crash near Meadow Ln. & Market St. in Concord on Sunday afternoon.

The collision occurred just after 4pm.

The cause of the collision is under investigation, and it hasn’t been confirmed if anybody suffered any major injuries.

We will update you with more information when it’s available.

There seems to be an awful lot of mass and inertia involved in this one.

That one guy May 4, 2014 at 5:26 PM

The fourth is not strong with this one!

Cleary they weren’t driving the posted speed limit of 30. lol

The Daily Fl!p!

Dorothy May 4, 2014 at 6:25 PM

How do they manage to do that?

Ya right May 4, 2014 at 6:31 PM

To quote”anon”, motorcycles are the problem.

For a minute I thought this was what all the excitement was, but doesn’t seem to be the location.
My hubby and I saw a helicopter (life flight?) And two police cars moving in the same direction. He says it was on Taylor towards Martinez…
Maybe something is in the cue as I type, who knows.

Cops were there and everyone was out of the car when I drove by. No obvious injuries.

Just guess. The picture with people talking.

The driver is saying “I was only going 30mph” and the lady is laughing at him.

Clever way to park a car

People, people don’t sound so excited–it was only the daily roll. 🙂

Just out for a Sunday drive in Concord.

I was the driver directly behind this guy. He was tailgating extremely close to driver ahead of him, laying on his horn the whole time. Then he passed across the yellow line, 3 cars, at a very high rate of speed. The next thing I know, his car was rolling over multiple times. Wow.

How do I “share” just this Claycord post, to my Facebook page? May 4, 2014 at 9:54 PM

Jason, you can copy and past the title of this post into your facebook and it will share it.

I hope everyone is all right.

It could have been just an overly aggressive attempt to parallel park.

Would car insurance be a lot if cheaper if everyone drove like they had a brain?

Make sure you contact Concord PD I am sure your story is not the one he the police.

Hopefully wreckless driving charges will stick to Mr Tailgater based on witness accounts.

Jason @#13 – I frequently see people who are constantly changing lanes and it makes me wish there were some way to let them know that their speeding around other cars doesn’t get anywhere much sooner than the rest of us (assuming their destination isn’t really a hospital, of course).

On Saturday I was behind a guy day going down Clayton Road toward Concord BART who was weaving in and out. I picked a lane, stayed in it, and drove the speed limit. When we got to the light at Concord BART, he had managed to get a whole two cars ahead of me.

Morons in transit

Jason May 5, 2014 at 8:11 AM

Thanks for the reply

Cowellian May 5, 2014 at 8:45 AM

BFF, there’s nothing wreckless about this incident.

SF CityGirl May 5, 2014 at 12:07 PM

They see you rollin, they hatin, you be riding dirty…

BagsFlyFree May 5, 2014 at 12:11 PM

@ 25 – CW – Driver intimidation (illegal use of horn), tailgating, speeding, improper lane change, illegallly crossing highway (double line).. Nope he’s just strolling through admiring the roses on the street..

Because of the severity of the damage caused, i’d say a suspended license and mandatory 100 hours Concord trash cleanup would be perfect punishment for the $ spent cleaning up this mess.

BFF Out!

Cowellian May 5, 2014 at 12:54 PM

I love word play, but I sure hate having to explain it. I was just having a little fun with your choice of words. Wreckless isn’t a real word, but it does imply an absence of a wreck, which clearly isn’t the case here.
