Default Accident on 466 in front of Bob Evans.

One car with front smashed in and the other with side damaged. Could have been that someone ran red light. Happened about 6:30 tonight.

Hope everyone will be o.k.

I always try to say a prayer when I see an accident. Not a good time to be driving in TV right now.

I saw someone blow right through a red light yesterday ... not amber ... red.
Folks, please look both ways, even if you have a green light.
My Mom taught me to always say a prayer when I see an accident or an ambulance.

I have seen a couple of cars blow right through red lights. Mostly on turn arrows. I wonder what they are thinking.

8:15pm accident vehicles up on flat bed wreckers - damage easy to see. Traffic still being detoured at that time.

Car with its front end demolished T-boned larger vehicle mid-car to rear passenger door. Both cars appeared as if they had been poorly loaded into a commercial car crusher.

Prayers offered up for all involved. I will now count to 5 instead of 3 after my light turns green.

Today returning from golf we seen a state trooper standing outside his cruiser which was parked where the cart path comes up behind the Glenbrook gate. Had no idea why he was there or looking for.

I usually wait 2-3 seconds after the light changes to green before I go just in case some knucklehead is running 10 minutes late and in a hurry. If someone beeps their horn behind me, well, we wait an additional 2-3 seconds

Last few years heard village friends comment about TV heavy traffic during this time. I always replied " I see more but really not that bad". This year, IMO, from 441/27 to 466A north to south, east to west traffic in six years NEVER seen anything here like it.

The traffic you are referencing is nothing compared to what it will be when the southern end of TV and Fruitland Park are finally built and occupied.

I do the same. Running red lights seems to be a normal occurrence here. Impatience seems to be another.
