Nasty and scary crash on Southbound 101 right at the Miramar Hotel, parallel to South Jameson. I'm not sure what caused the crash but I heard the sirens from my house and went to check it out.

I saw one car that had front end damage and had spun around 180 degrees to be facing backward and the silver a Toyota in the photos flew off the right shoulder and through the pathetically flimsy fence and almost  (thank God it didn’t) landed onto South Jameson Road.

I ride my bike with my kids along that side of the road several times a week coming back from Posilipo and the thought of how easily a car can careen off the freeway at high speeds and jump the median into pedestrians is truly horrifying. We definitely need an upgrade in the safety barrier guard rail or a wall or something there along that stretch.  And I’ve been told this same median-jumping accident has occurred in that same spot on South Jameson at least one other time and possibly more often than anyone wants to admit or think about.

I thought the same thing when we parked there recently. It's a terribly flimsy fence along the freeway at the new Miramar. A tragic accident waiting to happen. I'm glad nobody was hurt in this one.

Back in the late1960s, whilst driving to Grandmas, we went through the fence there after a flat tire sent us spinning out of control. We went through the same flimsy fence, so I guess some things never change.
