It was around 1 35 I was nearby cowell ave and i heard the sirens. Like four patrols and one motorcycle were driving towards monument. I thought they were chasing someone

Talk about an EPIC FAIL!

Is that a stupid Prius?!

Wow. I was on-scene for that one car accident on Oak Grove Sunday night, too. Oak Grove Road is dangerous!

Blast from the past TRASH’s apartment! Hope everyone is OK.

Interesting head on crash. After the two hit one another, the gray car went into a wormhole and came out behind the police car. Also this must be the wee-England part of Concord since the police car is on the left.

8 WOW YOU PEOPLE ARE ANGRY!!!! SEEK HELP NOW!! June 4, 2014 at 1:50 PM

Never a nice thing to say.

Is this all you people have going on in your life? How very sad.

@What security, My thoughts exactly. Check the cop for drugs etc also.. Glad no serious injuries though.. But test all involved , not sure why it only said test the other driver, police are human too, as we all found out…

Bet that prius made an illegal u-turn. They need to put the no u-turn sign in the median so drivers can see it when jumping into the turning lane. I almost get creamed all the time trying to turn left onto Oak Grove by some idiot making an illegal u-turn.

There were two patrol cars speeding down Oak Grove towards Monument. Both had lights and sirens on and were heading to a call. When I drove by after the accident the patrol car was at the enterence to Sierra facing the wrong way.

There are a lot of accidents in that area from people making U-turns. The cars go so fast down Oak Grove and you can’t see that intersection due to a curve in the road. So the U-turn cars can’t see the on-coming (speeding) traffic and it results in lots of accidents.

@8. Sorry to say, but welcome to the internet comments section. Everyone is keyboard gangster these days.

To #8 “Wow, you people are angry!” My thoughts exactly! Never a nice thing to say. Nothing but negative thoughts to spew! Makes me wonder why I’m still reading the comments. Goodbye, angry, venomous people who must simply like to see their mean words in print! Real life is calling you!.

WTF are you all talking about??? I observed Two Police cruisers headed Northbound in the Middle of Oak Grove Rd at a HIGH rate of speed. Were they responding to this or were they headed somewhere else and caused this?
I repeat – A High rate of Speed down the Middle of Oak Grove Rd. Definitely not safe no matter how trained you are. Too many other vehicles around.

@ #4 City Girl – Doesn’t look like a PRIUS……but I agree with you PRIUS drivers are pretty stupid people.

16 Not A Keyboard Gangster June 4, 2014 at 2:41 PM

@No BS – I can’t stop laughing at “Keyboard gangster” :)
yep.

Glad the cop is okay.

I actually saw a police car and ambulance driving on Detroit Ave at the same time at 12:40pm I was standing on the corner of Detroit and Laguna waiting for bus 14 heading to Concord BART. They both did had sirens going as well.

@ #4 and #10.

It’s not a Prius. It’s either a Ford Fiesta or Ford Focus.

20 Nancy June 4, 2014 at 3:04 PM

It’s looks like a 2014 Ford Fiesta.

21 just a concordian June 4, 2014 at 3:27 PM

So stupid people drive Priuses. Stupid… completely unlike those rustbuckets on 24s drivers. Or any GM vehicle owner. Umm… too soon?

22 Michelle June 4, 2014 at 3:36 PM

Let’s be real, even cops get into accidents. Hope they are ok.

23 zeuskab00s June 4, 2014 at 3:47 PM

It’s not a Prius. It’s a Ford Focus ST.

24 Don June 4, 2014 at 3:54 PM

Drove by after the accident. My dash cam caught this footage. The prius was wrapped around the tree with full airbags deployed. You can make a legal u turn, driving south on Oak Grove Rd. Some of the turns abouts are marked no u turn. This one was not.

25 What security June 4, 2014 at 4:32 PM

We should all be riding bicycles anyway, or 3 wheeler’s anyway.
to many Fat A anyway

26 white boy June 4, 2014 at 7:05 PM

Oh cpd doing those traps again

27 Marianne June 4, 2014 at 7:47 PM

what can be expected, it’s not Monday.

28 Hmm June 4, 2014 at 9:27 PM

One report said the driver made an illegal left turn. Which in that area means either they were making an illegal U-turn (but left turns are ok) or they were exiting a private driveway turning left onto the wrong side of the road. Because left turns at Sierra are legal (both entering and exiting Sierra). Weird.
