    What's up with that corner recently? Not only this accident follows one on May 5th but not too long before that a truck slid off the same hillside road adjacent to the corner. What a ting!

      Parked too close to the edge probably didn’t have the emergency brake on. Glad no one was hurt. This could have been a terrible disaster.

      You'd be better off asking Jesus to fix the infrastructure that's literally crumbling under our feet (wheels)
