My thoughts and prayers goes out to those involved in that accident earlier this evening on Ridge Road. Both vehicles were smashed in pretty bad, looked like it may have been head on collision, it looked really bad. They were rerouting traffic.

OH NO! Prayers to all involved. That is awful. I was at the bakery from 11am until almost 1am and didn't hear anything. I hope and pray no one was badly hurt or worse. :o(

They were crushed pretty bad, it looked they had been placed in a trash compactor. Somebody had to be going really fast to cause those vehicles to be crushed like that.

I did not hear all of it, but there was an entrapment and they were trying to extricate. Got busy and didn't hear anything else.

Automobiles and their use are responsible for more pollution and other environmental destruction, including the largest share of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, than any other human pursuit in the world. Cars also cause 40,000 human and 400,000,000 animal deaths every year in the US. Cars lead to suburban growth (= natural habitat destruction) and social isolation.

I live right passed this area. Everyone flies down Ridge, even in the mornings, through the school zone. You literally risk your life turning left out of Austin middle school. I wish we could get a police presence every morning, I know we may not have enough resources, but dang, think of all the revenue!

Have you called or filled out a request to have the Sheriff's department look at this area?

If not, go Here and fill out the form.

This will alert the Lieutenant that is over the traffic units that this area needs to be patrolled.
