Not a wonder - people drive like f'n maniacs on Livorna, Stone Valley, and a number of the other east/west routes. Slow down you yuppie scum.

My definition of "Yuppie Scum" is someone who uses that expression with regard to a serious auto accident.

Actually, those words are not severe enough to describe you. I would use more appropriate words, but Dolores would have a conniption fit before she remove my post.

Use your own imagination to think about how low a person you are.

I can't believe Dolores would allow a remark like the one posted by Derek. I got booted for a very mellow remark that maybe we should get rid of the committee against the horse instead of getting rid of the horse.

I passed this accident while on a bike ride and I haven't stopped thinking about the young woman laying on the ground gasping for air. There were many people on the scene and all were doing whatever was possible to help keep this woman alive. The driver of the white truck was admitting to someone on his cell phone that he had just caused a major accident and that his truck was totaled. If anyone has any details about the condition of the woman driver I'd really appreciate your comments.

This is sad for all involved. I've seen too much of this sort of thing, and I truly hope that she recovers, and that the driver can also get his life back on track after this tragic incident. My thoughts are with them...

We are so thankful to everyone who stopped at the accident to help and to all of the people who have prayed for her. She suffered traumatic injuries but is going to live.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

HOW did the accident happen? Was it speeding or??? ...and so near Alamo School!! I use Livorna Road almost daily and have noticed high speeds near the park.

I certainly appreciate the update Family Friend. This was traumatic for everyone on the scene. We tried to keep the children in the area from getting too close. Some of the moms thought it was OK for their kids to run up to see the crash.

The accident was the fault of a driver who wasn't paying attention. He was coming up the hill and looked down( probably texting), and went over the yellow line into the other lane. His truck hit the other car head-on.
