Last year, at the same location, anther autopilot Tesla crashed, “with almost identical circumstances…the difference was that the male driver ran into a semi-truck.” It is still not clear what caused the car to swerve in the present case, but certainly interesting that it occurred in the same spot as a previous crash.  Continue Reading

According to ABC 7 News, locals have come to dub Inland Empire’s Ramona Expressway, “Blood Alley.” Driving along the expressway over 40 roadside memorials can be seen, tributes to those killed in car accidents along the corridor.

Residents state that “You’ve got people passing you on the shoulder, people passing head-on on the one-lane bridge,” adding to the danger in this area. Continue Reading

According to ABC 7 News, it appears that two vehicles initially collided, but because of the heavy fog and reduced visibility, the crash started a chain reaction. More that 20 cars were part of the pile up. Officers and paramedics responded immediately and treated 17 people for injuries. Two were transported to the hospital for life-threatening injuries.

Drivers said they tried to avoid the crash, but poor visibility lead to other accidents. As a result, all southbound lanes were closed for over two hours.
