Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


Glad to hear they are ok.

And thanks to those bystanders who risked their lives in multiple ways to save lives.

Just a reminder to everyone... if you have to leave the house in your car please drive slower and more cautiously than you would normally. It's a bad time to end up in the hospital. Let's continue to support our community and the amazing health care workers who are already pushed to extreme limits under terrible circumstances.

They were lucky that there were bystanders at 1:15 a.m.

Crash + ALH + bystanders at 1am = drag racing?

Glad no-one was hurt.

It's normal to hear the drag racing in the middle of the night through the Casey Arborway and racing down 203. When the rotary was there, I used to hear crashes all the time and it was scary as shit. Now it's just drag racing down the freeway.
