    6:40 am, on my way to work... I was at the stoplight at the corner near my home... Ethan and El Camino...

    A pedestrian had just got passed us on her way across the intersection... when BaBAMMM.

    There were seven cars in total that were damaged... two folks went away in the ambulance... one pickup two cars behind in my lane was hit so hard that the light pole came down when he was driven forward into it passed the car that behind me that he was driven into... That light pole was in front of me on the side of the road at the intersection...

    Not the way I envisioned this day to start...

    I'm at home waiting for the adjuster and to get in to see my doctor.

    Did you say El Camino Real? If so then it is the Curse of the Camino. Everyone knows that the Padres drove evil out in the El Camino Real but every so often evil come back on the El Camino Real. I had an accident on the El Camino Real also.

    Oh Well, then perhaps an awful driver is the culprit ... :)

    Sorry to hear about that. Hope you have no injuries. I was parked in a parking lot in January and a kid in an Escalade backed into my car. Had to get a new rear bumper. Hassle. Best wishes on dealing with this.

    Prayers sent.

    I'm glad you walked away, and I hope that your body and frame are still straight and true.
    The car is replaceable. :)

    Yep Saturday night 10:00 PM a car going from side to side and catching up to a car in front of her who was traveling slower. I though it was a drunk driver. When I looked in the car a young girl texting and driving. Unbelievable.
