Hauling Butt

Imperial Beach sheriff deputies are investigating a violent three-car accident that sent two drivers to the hospital.

At 9:10 a.m., Wednesday, June 17, at the intersection of 13th Street and Holly Avenue, a red Nissan Pathfinder was making a left turn to go north on 13th Street when it was hit broadside by an older white Buick LaSabre headed north on 13th Street. The Pathfinder was knocked onto its left side and collided with a dark gray Toyota that was behind it.

The female driver of the Toyota and the elderly female driver of the LaSabre were rushed by ambulance to the hospital. The female driver of the Pathfinder refused medical attention and said she was cited for failure to yield. "A lady came out of nowhere and hit me," she cried to neighbors who came to her aide.

Fifteen-year-old eyewitness Anthony L. backed up her claim. He had been outside across the street and saw the Pathfinder turning. "There were no other cars, and in three steps — bam! &emdash; the white car came out of nowhere."

Anthony's Mom, comforting her son, said of the white car, "She was hauling butt. People are always speeding through; they need a four-way stop sign here."

With all the school kids that cross at this intersection it is a surprise we have not had a child killed here. There has been at least six major accident in the past year, multiple hit & runs, Several DUI related accidents. What I see the most is people going across 13th without stopping & the speed on holly & 13th.

There is a need for 4-Ways in Imperial Beach and a longer transition of the lights at Imperial Beach Blvd. & 9th - Everyday I see speeders bolting through heading East and West! Someone is Going to die here!

Shouldn't citizen safety come before decorations at the beach??
