The fire department used the jaws-of-life to rescue a man who was stuck inside his vehicle after a rollover collision in front of Mt. View Elementary School on Thornwood Dr. in Concord today.

The collision occurred at about 2:15 p.m.

Witnesses say the man also struck a parked vehicle.

No word yet on the man’s condition, and the cause is under investigation.

Thanks to Cindy for the photo.

Methinks speed may have been a factor

Huh? Are you drunk? If so please don’t drive.

Try walking your kids across E. Olivera to Holbrook. No one yields and the city and CPD can’t or won’t do anything until a child is killed. Families come first my a$$! Slow down around all schools and pay attention you could save a life. Thankfully no one was hurt.

Obviously was not going 25 mph in a school zone.

I don’t understand how that happened right there unless someone was flying down Thornwood and blew the stop sign….

I am not sure what the cause of this crash is but I live right by here and people definitely speed too fast down this stretch (when they are not flying down Bailey Road, that is…)

Safe attentive operation of the vehicle has been ruled out (as what caused this crash).

More traffic enforcement of speeding on residential streets, especially around schools

I spoke to a parent who witnessed this. The young man passed her at a normal rate of speed and drifted over, hit the parked cars and flipped. Not speeding, although many do. A blessing that it was not 5-10 minutes later when school gets out.

He was probably looking or texting on his phone if he drifted and it’s a new care so he probably was not used to it yet and how sensitive it could be. So lucky the kids were not out of school or no one else got hurt.

Don’t need to speed to roll. Hit a curb at the wrong angle…And over you go. Not sure if this was the case.

Dialing and driving ?

Check the phone record.

I was on scene when this accident happened because my child goes to that school. I ran immediately up to the vehicle once it happened… I am not a doctor however it appeared to me that he was experiencing some type of medical emergency maybe a seizure. He was not speeding from what I could see and it’s an absolute blessing that nobody else was hurt in this accident. Maybe we should not be so quick to judge this could have happened to anybody. I do hope that the driver is recovering and doing well
