The NEWS24/680 Jungle Drums really started pounding Monday after a tractor-trailer failed to make a the turn at Rheem Boulevard and Moraga Road tonight, high centering on the median in front of Autohaus and clipping a streetlight.
The truck was traveling south on Moraga Road when it tried to make a right-hand turn at Rheem Boulevard and clipped the pole at the intersection’s northwest corner.
It turns out half the town saw it, with Brent sending in pictures, John and Marissa, Frank and Lorice all pinging us with the news in what was an apparently highly visible accident downtown Monday night.
No one hurt but the driver was unhappy.
Moraga PD says the accident damaged the traffic signal at that location, too… sooooo… it’s flashing red lights for a while as motorists grip their steering wheels and bear it. The driver was subsequently cited for failing to obey posted traffic signs, according to police.
