Neighbors near 596 Michael Lane in Lafayette were startled by a loud noise and the sight of a car on its roof in the middle of the street Wednesday – the result of an apparent collision with a parked car.
Officers said a Concord woman traveling northbound on Michael Lane told officers she did not see the parked until it was too late. She also said she was unfamiliar with the area. The unidentified driver clambered out of the turtled vehicle uninjured, police said.
Investigators have not determined the woman’s speed at the time of the crash and said the angle of the impact on the parked car is what caused her car to roll over. That stretch of Michael Lane is posted for 15 mph, neighbors and police say.
We’d say you don’t normally see this sort of thing on quiet, suburban streets but, well, we do.
