Ah, to be fair, most of the collisions listed in this thread seem to be the result of a medical condition: “cognitive failure.”

I feel like there’s an epidemic of cars hitting houses on Federal St.

Hmmm, I think I have a few ideas for the police to consider as to cause:

……Police didn’t immediately release the driver’s name, or say why they believe she crashed into the homes about 3:30 a.m. Monday….

Maybe they need a stop sign at alpine ave / henderson st intersection to get people to think about slowing down. Isn’t this like the 3rd time in a year that these houses have been hit?

To be fair, one of those houses hit was by a car going uphill.

This street has been here 150 years. Is this a recent thing, or has it been going on at this pace forever?

One more time, I’ll drag out my question: What was the driver doing driving, #1? i.e., was driver impaired? And what was the driver doing driving, #2? i.e, was there no transit service? OK, at 3:30 a.m., probably not,

…but should there be? The Perrysville could conceivably support 24-hour service. The Brighton had it, when any did. Late evening Perrysvilles are anything but empty.

Not “what was the cause of the crash” (DUI, bad brakes, unlicensed driver, etc.), but what was the cause of the cause of the crash? (bars that are trouble, faulty inspection shops, people allowing an unlicensed driver access to car keys) And what was the cause of the cause of the cause of the crash? (bus service, bad infrastructure, societal desire to own cars when it’s not in their best interest) … And I’m sure there are deeper things than that in play here, too.

Dump truck rams 117-year-old church in Zelienople

“The truck was going westbound on Route 68 when it hit a wooden electrical pole, street signs, a car in the church parking lot, and finally the church itself.”

Apparently the self-driving trucks of our future aren’t quite ready for prime time yet.
