Woodstock smashup totals cars; drivers escape injury
Modern automotive safety features likely were all that kept their occupants from injuries, when two cars collided in the late morning of Saturday, February 27, on Woodstock Boulevard at S.E. 60th Avenue. East Precinct officers were dispatched at 11:04 a.m.
An Audi A4 sedan had crashed into a wooden utility pole at the northwest corner of the intersection; a Mazda 3 was also involved, and was stopped in the middle of the intersection. Both vehicles were severely damaged.
The driver of the Audi told THE BEE that she was driving westbound on Woodstock Boulevard, when the Mazda, northbound on 60th Avenue "darted out into intersection" and collided with her car.
Because the smashup was dispatched as an injury accident, paramedics from Woodstock Station 25 arrived and examined the drivers involved in the crash, but found no significant injuries. "I did bump my head pretty hard," reminded the Audi's driver.
Afterward, an East Precinct officer told THE BEE that, with no injuries involved, no citations would be issued. "This is an incident that will be handled by the insurance companies," he explained.
