I don't know exactly what happened in this collision, but I do know that people drive way too fast and way too close on these streets. Combine that with wet conditions and collisions are going to happen. Best wishes to the injured people, but collisions due to speed and tailgating and not paying attention to traffic conditions are easily preventable.

when people come down from bridge they don't slow down.as soon they see yellow light they try to make it through.left turn is not wide enough.people loose their control and get in to crash. I hate this corner always accident in that corner. I think needs to make it wide turn and lift right side so whicle automatticaly get in to shape.I hope both driver get well.ohter rivers shuold learn lession.

Terrible visuals on this wreck -- the one car was up on the median strip. Police had set up a tent and were also taking pictures, potentially for evidence. Sad that when we get some rain around here people react like southerners in the snow.

It is just morons driving on the wet streets. A lot of people don't change their tires, thus loose control. Thanks. Longest drive to work ever.
