On the Skids in Carbon Canyon # 2307











It'd actually been a little while, but, alas, within the last week, perhaps two, another incident of a driver on Carbon Canyon Road making their mark have taken place. This occurrence was on the Brea side on the eastbound side of Carbon Canyon Road (State Highway 142).

In this case, the vehicle operator went off the road, clipped a supporting pole for the power lines and chipped off a nice chunk of the pole, and then ascended the slight embankment bending back a reflector (designed to let drivers know where the shoulder is and, thereby, assist in keeping said drivers on the road) before, presumably, returning to the road and on their merry way (hmmm, speaking of "merry", could intoxication potentially have been a factor?).

Once again, no one was likely injured, this incident was probably not reported and, therefore, it's just another case of hit-and-miss.

An update from 16 August: A comment from "Rizon25" was placed after this entry was made and reads: I passed by when the car was still flipped over. It was a Ford mustang and the car was entirely on its back. Police were already there when I passed by. It was around 8:30 on Friday morning I believe. Hmmmm . . . a Ford Mustang went off the road and landed upside down on the highway! Who'd a thunk it? D'ya think speed (and, possibly, other items) might have been a factor?

Dear Readers: The Carbon Canyon Chronicle will be out of commission for the next couple of weeks, but look for another cool installment of "Carbon Canyon History" when it is back in operation again!
