Crash statistics high during rainy weekend

SAN DIEGO COUNTY (Wire Service) – Rain may have been a factor in the unusually-high number of crashes during the weekend’s rain, California Highway Patrol officers said today, Sun., Dec. 30.

There were 83 collisions between noon and 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 29, when rain was falling on San Diego County roads, officers said.

There are an average 50 to 75 crashes in the county on a typical dry day, the CHP reported.

CHP crash totals account for all state freeways and highways, and local roads in unincorporated areas, but do not include crashes on streets within city limits.

    Remember that no matter how late you are or how much of a hurry you’re in, it’s better to arrive late than not at all.

    The number of complete idiots out there yesterday on the 5 in the pouring rain on wet slick roads going too fast for the conditions, weaving in and out of traffic. If one of them had to stop suddenly they would have flipped and rolled for a mile at least. Stupid.

    Agree with SB.
    As you try to go speeding by us slower cars driving safely you are not getting anywhere but behind another car driving slowly and safely. So you arent getting anywhere faster then us. So just hang out with the turtles and get there safe!!
