Bad auto accident near here
We're largely cut off from town (can still get there by going east, then south, and coming back west), have been for about 3-4 hours. First clue was lots of sirens and emergency vehicles really hauling tail.
News says a Honda Accord, full of teenagers, was speeding south down Bear Canyon Rd when they lost control and went head-on into a pickup. The Accord was pretty well demolished. The two in the front seat were killed, three others had non-life threatening injuries. Which, considering the state of the Accord, is very lucky.
In my last try at getting thru, deputies were searching both sides of the road (it's sealed off about a quarter mile from the actual accident site). I assume looking for missing car parts.
Understand, this is a 2 lane road; in a dozen years here, this is only the second accident I've seen on it. Some of the younger drivers do tend to take it rather fast (you want to be careful when the high school above us lets out).
