On the Skids in Carbon Canyon #15927

Another weekend, another accident.

Another sign needlessly and cruelly mangled by an errant driver--this just west of Carriage Hills Drive on the south side of Carbon Canyon Road in an incident that took place over the weekend.
In this case, an westbound vehicle coming around the curve just past the entrance to Carriage Hills heading down from the S-curve along Carbon Canyon Road on the Chino Hills side of the canyon obviously took the curve too quickly, crossed the opposing lane, and skidded into and up the landscaped slope.

A glaring sun and a glaring example of dangerous driving (leading to a distended sign) on Carbon Canyon Road west of Carriage Hills Drive over the weekend.
There must be something about inanimate objects being in the wrong place at the wrong time, because the sign indicating the upcoming turn into Carriage Hills was twisted and contorted by the collision.

A somewhat faint pair of skid marks can be discerned, especially on the white shoulder stripe, from the vehicle that crossed the opposing lane of Carbon Canyon Road and clambered up the landscaped slope striking the sign at the upper left in an accident that took place last weekend.

It sure has been a busy 2014 in terms of reckless and dangerous driving on Carbon Canyon Road.  The potential of 400+ new homes coming in to the canyon in the future might mean more risk of accidents, especially on weekends and evenings.

Something was hit in the Canyon today. I was headed to Brea and on my right side, something was covered with a blue blanket and a lady in a uniform was crouched next to it, looking underneath the blanket as if she was checking on the animal. On the other side of the road, a Brea police SUV and some other government vehicle was parked behind. Then I saw an animal services driving towards the scene. Traffic in that area was stop and go, but I didn't get a chance to check it out. Just wondering if anyone knows what happened. Very sad.
