Car accident floods Garfield and Commonwealth, causes power outage

An accident involving two cars damaged a fire hydrant and traffic control box at the intersection of Garfield and Commonwealth avenues Thursday, flooding the street and causing a power outage in the area.

A driver heading north on Garfield struck another vehicle while making a left turn onto Commonwealth around 1:30 p.m., according to Sgt. Jerry Johnson. The second driver hit a nearby fire hydrant and traffic control box, causing a flood and power outage at the intersection. Police issued a traffic advisory until the damaged control signal was repaired. The advisory was lifted Friday around 4:15 a.m., according to a Facebook post from the Alhambra Police Department.

The first driver sustained a minor injury and was taken to a local hospital, while the second complained of pain but did not request medical assistance, Johnson said. Police determined that neither was driving under the influence.

  1. Car accidents are very common these days due to several things. Mainly, Because of the rash driving by the car operators accidents happens. Other reasons are: drunk driving and distract driving. People should obey the traffic rules while driving their vehicles. Also some other reasons are there and those are the basic problems in vehicles. So, car engine and brake repair also very necessary to avoid possibility of accidents.

  2. The accident seems to be horrible.But its good that nobody was injured much.Both the cars were damaged but the cars can be rebuilt again with salvage title as salvage cars.
