SUV Flips On Street Known For Speeding
Paerdegat Avenue North has a long-standing reputation as a speeding zone – and for good reason. At approximately 1:35 p.m. last Thursday, a Toyota Rav4 collided with a late-model Honda Accord on Paerdegat Avenue North near Paerdegat 5th Street. Eyewitnesses say that the impact of the collision caused the Rav4 to flip over, shattering the sunroof. The driver of the SUV crawled out of the sunroof and ran to another car – reportedly a friend’s vehicle that was following behind him. That car fled the scene with the accident victim. Paramedics treated the driver of the Honda for injuries and he was taken into an ambulance for further medical attention. Residents say there are far too many accidents on the traffic strip, which desperately needs speed bumps and traffic lights.
