A Tesla sedan collided with a Laguna Beach police car parked on Laguna Canyon road. Luckily, no one was injured in the accident. The Laguna Beach Patch reported that the car accident occurred when the Tesla on autopilot suddenly veered out of its lane and into the police car.

According to The Patch, this is not the first Tesla accident in that area. 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.

The expressway is dangerous because of heavy traffic, especially where the roadway narrows to just two lanes, one in each direction. 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

A fire that began in a Victorville neighborhood and raged through the hills, was started by illegal fireworks. ABC 7 News reported that after the fire began an explosion and a wind gust spread the fire quickly.  The fire caused damage to several homes and yards, though luckily, due to the quick response of firefighters, no homes were completely lost. One resident stated, “I pulled [my] curtain open, I looked through the blinds, and all I saw was a huge fire right above our house, it looked like it was going to fall into our back yard.” Fortunately for those who set off the illegal fireworks, there were no personal injuries caused by the fire.

Southern California fire marshals have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to illegal fireworks because of how dangerous they can be in the dry, fire-prone, Southern California environment. With the 4th of July just around the corner, residents in this Victorville neighborhood are urging people to remember that when “You shoot off a firework, and it only takes one spark for it to light a whole street on fire, if it wasn’t for the fire department being right up that street, who knows what would have happened?”
