    A 1997 Benz is expensive? LOL

    You can buy that model car used for around $3k, so I wouldn't assume affluence is the issue.

    So, you have all the details of the cause of this accident? You know for a fact it was due to booze...and definitely nothing to do with slick roads?

    Yea, i bet it's hard to maintain control of your vehicle at 1 am after a full night of drinking and driving fast! But, of course we should blame the road engineers for making a road....with a turn in it...near a house , haha .

    Not the first time a car crashed there. Several people died there as well. Not that bad of a turn either.

    Yikes!! What a rude awakening to hear that at 1 AM!!! Glad it missed the house.

    Hope the car's occupants will be ok.

    This has to be the 3rd or 4th incident in the past 2 years that someone has either crashed into the neighborhood sign (Right outside the house) or the house itself.

    I drive by this home everyday. I feel bad for the people living there. The curve is not that hard to handle. Anyone crashing there has to be inebriated.
