Reminder – Nacimiento Road

Last night, there was a head-on collision. USFS and the CHP were still on scene at 9 pm, and estimated the time for a tow-truck to get to the scene…3-8 HOURS. Fortunately, the injuries were minor – evenly matched cars, not car vs. big truck, I suspect, and seatbelts. This was inevitable. People are unfamiliar with that road. It is 1 and 1/2 lanes wide in many places, very mountainous, no guardrails and very windy. People are driving it way too fast and not staying on their own side of the road around blind corners. SLOW IT DOWN, PEOPLE!!!

UPDATE: Pick up vs. SUV, Locals vs. Euros
