T-Bone Traffic Collision on De La Vina Street Wednesday around 4:20 PM.

A large black SUV traveling south on De La Vina was t-boned by a gray Jeep SUV exiting the Trade Joe’s parking lot. The black SUV was struck on or near the passenger side door.

Both vehicles were leaking fluids and had to be towed. One witness stated the black SUV tried to swerve out of the way and went into the turninglane, yet was still struck.

Another witness stated they could smell gasoline after the collision and saw fluids coming from both of the involved vehicles.

No apparent serious injuries were reported.

    • Just a picture of the area. Not the actual large SUV wich had already been towed. And would have been traveling in the opposite direction, South.

      The photo of the Jeep is accurate. The white SUV is a reference photo to show which exit was relative. I try to get the Who, What, Where, When and Why Plus somehow, the How. Wish me luck on that endevour, plus photographs??? [lofty] SMH, at myself.

      Be well, Tagdes. Be well Everyone.

      • On almost every T-Bone accident of a large-SUV. the drivetrain is either bent, broken, Misaligned or have some failing or even a falling drive-shaft (or other drive train clicking noises). These large SUV’s don’t do too well when side-slammed.

        Remember that Cadillac SUV story on Anacapa last summer, the rear axel was easily bent by a Tesla Model-X that was drifting in to the ROW traffic. These new models are softer, and apparently structurally more vulnerable, yet somehow they are believed to be generally safer for the occupants involved in such collisions?? IDK! I got there late and mainly got the available witness accounts.

  1. De La Vina around in the trader Joe’s area is very dangerous for drivers in the street and pedestrians on the sidewalks. There are also a lot of instances of drivers doing illegal U turns to grab a street parking space or to leave the area. There are frequent J walkers darting across the street. Along with the crowded parking lot, all this activity makes the area one of the most dangerous in the city.
