Head-on smashup on Woodstock Blvd. infamous 'curve'
Although apparently no injuries resulted from it, two cars crashed head-on in S.E. Woodstock Boulevard's notorious "S-curve" at 69th Avenue, on Wednesday evening, January 6. East Precinct officers arrived at 6:48 p.m. that evening, just four minutes after being dispatched.
"From our preliminary investigation, it appears the driver of a Subaru Legacy Outback was eastbound, and for some reason, crossed over the center line, and crashed into a westbound Honda Odyssey," a PPB officer told THE BEE. It might have been a result of oversteering in the curve.
"People tend to drive way too fast through these curves – that's why we have wrecks here," the officer observed.
After the impact, the front end of the Subaru swung around, ending up at the curb, with its damaged front end against the rear bumper of a parked Honda Element.
While the drivers waited for tows, they exchanged information. Since there were no injuries, in accordance with current city practice, no citations were issued, and the respective insurance companies involved were left to deal with the aftermath.
