On the Skids in Carbon Canyon #18888

This morning, while driving westbound along Carbon Canyon Road, a dark-colored car was spotted stopped at an unusual place, a dirt access road to a portion of Chino Hills State Park bordering the state highway--and one that did have a gate.

Returning home several hours later, the scene showed another accident had taken place--the location being about 1/4 mile east of the state park's Discovery Center.

Whether it was just the one vehicle noticed earlier in the morning or not, there were skid marks and debris on the shoulder, scraping on a guardrail and, then, the damage left when the aforementioned car blasted through the steel gate and came to rest on the access road.

Obviously, a cause can only be speculated upon, but this marks a busy month for crashes on Carbon Canyon Road.
