Carbon Canyon Road Crash--Lane Closed

Just a few moments ago, a black sedan came roaring through Sleepy Hollow on Carbon Canyon Road heading eastbound, then skidded, hit the embankment on the south side of the highway next door to my house and came to rest on its side.

Taken minutes ago from my backyard, showing the black sedan that tore eastbound through Sleepy Hollow on Carbon Canyon Road before skidding off the road, hittng the embankment on the south side and coming to rest on the driver's side just a few feet to the west.

A quick call to 9-1-1 followed with a fast survey of the scene and talking to some neighbors revealed that there appears to be no one hurt in the one-car accident.

So, what more is there to say?  Reckless speeding and driving is literally a several times daily occurrence on this roadway and there are the skid marks, damaged signs, and, occasionally, mangled cars to prove it.

Chino Hills/San Bernardino County Sheriff personnel were on the scene quickly to direct traffic and write the report that will likely be promptly filed away and forgotten for eternity.

And, this goes back decades and decades, while the operating assumption seems to be that this is normal and to be expected.
