No injuries in 'T-Bone' smashup in Brentwood-Darlington
Two late-model vehicles appeared totaled, after a grinding side-impact crash that took place on Tuesday afternoon, July 28, on S.E. 52nd Avenue at Flavel Drive, in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood.
Paramedic/firefighters crewing Woodstock Fire Station's Engine 25 were dispatched to the accident at 4:13 p.m. When they arrived, they found that the drivers of both vehicles were apparently uninjured – and up and walking around in the intersection. The paramedics stayed to perform precautionary examinations on both, however.
It appeared that the BMW X5 hatchback had been southbound on S.E. 52nd Avenue, and was cresting the hill just as the driver of a Subaru Forester, westbound on Flavel Drive, had started to drive across 52nd, and the BMW smacked into the Subaru.
As a result of the impact, the Subaru slid southward, knocking down the steel street and stop sign post on the west side 52nd Avenue, and coming to rest 40 feet beyond the intersection. The BMW stopped at the curb.
The drivers exchanged information, and both vehicles were later towed away.
