Another accident at the corner of Chapala and Arrellaga. Right in front of my house. Happens every week. Not to mention all of the near accident that I hear hourly with abrupt breaking and honking. City needs to do something here. Either add a stop sign or a light since Arrellaga goes straight to the freeway.

no kidding, 451. Same at Castillo X Mission, direct route to Cottage hospital. No left turn lane, not a killer YET. Just a spectator sport.

They the police have major barricade action around this accident near Chapala and Mission sounds like some type of investigation so someone must have been severly injured or worse. The whole area is pretty much blocked up..I just heard the offending driver is DUI-Drugs..

My husband just called me ask if Edhat had anything on about the Mission and State street area. He was leaving work and said the police have Mission blocked off at State. He could see several firetrucks and lots of squad cars as he looked down Mission toward Chapala when he drove up State. Sounds serious.

Thanks for the info I found here.

VERY bad intersection indeed - lots of accidents and near accidents there. At that very intersection we nearly ran over that local elderly poet - the one who rides/walks around with headphones on while not paying attention to anything going on around him!!

Noozhawk has story. Tow truck hit a parked car and ruptured a diesel fuel tank requiring cleanup.

We work on the corner of Arrellaga and Chapala and it's horrible! I'm worried one of these days someone is going to crash into the side of the building! DLV and Arrellaga is not much better. People drive WAY TO FAST down these streets esp Chapala and DLV they should start handing out more tickets!!

According to noozhawk the driver of the tow-truck "was driving impaired or may have suffered some sort of medical problem" and was "not very coherent".

"The accident involved a tow truck that collided with a parked car on Mission Street between Chapala and State streets shortly after 2 p.m.

A spill of diesel fuel from the tow truck's saddle tank prompted police and fire officials to shut down Chapala between Mission and Pedregosa Street, and Mission between State and De la Vina Street"

I used to live on Garden & Arrellaga, and there would be accidents several times a month. People crossing Garden think it's a 4-way stop, and the visibility is not sooo good. That's where I taught my young daughter how to call 911 and what to say. She became very good at it.

The accident at 1:55 was not *at* the corner, it was midway, closer to Valerio than Arrellaga, on Chapala. I was nearby.
