Default Another Accident on 466a and Buena Vista

We got detoured around another "beauty" early this afternoon. Looked like 2 cars involved at the intersection. We were headed down BV and were diverted back over to Morse at the last rotary by Community Watch. We were headed to the new Eisenhower Center (fabulous) - so managed to see the accident. Two cars- one fairly new,the other what I would term a "beater car". No idea if there were injuries, but the beater car looked totaled.
You really need to be safe our there.
I've learned to follow Gracie's advice - when the light turns green, count to 5 before entering any intersection. You stand a much better chance of not being t-boned.
And just think, the snow birds aren't back yet either... It's all us darned year rounders causing all this ruckus on a Sunday..

There was a very bad accident at that intersection last year. (or early this year)

A van got hit and ended up wrapped around a light pole!

It's silly season ....be careful out there.

There was a wrecked motorcycle and car on BV near the Old Mill Rd. about 4:30 today. A young man and woman were talking to the police and then walked over to the m/c, so I guess they were lucky and no one was injured.

Because I worry too much, I just want all of you to stay off the roads until the end of March.

I know that's silly, but all of you, assume they are all out to get you and drive defensively.

Hearing the sirens now several times a day and it will get worse.

Be CAREFUL.

Keep praying Gracie, I saw the leftovers of the T-bone on BVB today and later saw a motorcyclist on BVB lying on the road still under his motorcycle. Prayer is the best thing I know to do.

Sounds like a normal day in the NE. 100,000 (old) people in a confined area = more accidents.

Some of us ARE old. And most of us don't know how it happened.

But by all that I hold dear, we shouldn't be using age as a criticism on THIS forum.

Girls? Get ready. Supersoakers.

My 92 year old neighbor had a car accident resulting in a trip to the hospital for medical attention. The doctor said do you have a driver’s license; the neighbor said yes and showed it to the doctor. The doctor cut it in half and said you will not need this any more. My neighbor thanked him and the neighbor drove to Orlando later that day.

It’s a joke.
