Semi Truck Collision on Hwy 101 North in Carpinteria
By an edhat reader
So, this just happened in Carp between Santa Monica and Santa Claus, northbound. Traffic was already bad, even on sideroads. I watched from a bus stop on Via Real. He was going too fast to stop with traffic in front of him.
Fortunately he was in the right lane and able to veer onto the shoulder to avoid the cars in front of him. Unfortunately, they just recently put in that lovely palm tree. Don't head this way if it can be avoided. It's ugly.
