6-car pile-up by King Plow

Since we’re so commute/transit-focused here lately, I thought I’d share some not-so breaking traffic news. This morning, at approximately 8:24 a.m., 6 cars were involved in a chain-reaction fender-bender.

I can honestly say this was the largest non-highway accident I’d ever seen. All likely the result of someone turning into King Plow as they were travelling Southboud on Marietta Street.

I’m curious, what’s the biggest avoidable/rubbernecker accident you’ve ever seen on a surface street?

    You know, Seth, I was trying to come up with one but haven’t thought of a single example. In my experience surface street accidents are cleared up pretty quickly – or if they’re not, I don’t see them because in backed-up traffic I immediately turn onto another street (I’m of the “I’d rather be driving way out of the way but with forward motion” camp). Definitely haven’t seen a 6 car pileup off of a highway.
