Despite reduced traffic on the roads as a result of the coronavirus crisis, traffic accidents aren’t a thing of the past.

There was one about 7:15 this morning at the intersection of Ridge Avenue and Dempster street that left a smashed car up on the sidewalk.

No reports so far of injuries from the wreck.

    Unfortunately speeding has increased since traffic has dropped. Not surprised at all that this happened. Thankfully there was no one on the sidewalk when this happened.
