People on El Camino fly through red lights at this intersection ALL the time.
Didn't see the accident, but the way accidents like this can be avoided is by not running red lights .. and not starting across from LA Ave on a green light until all eight lanes on El Camino have stopped.

I was in the SB backed-up traffic after this accident that was forced to U-turn on El Camino Real (back towards Palo Alto). One could see a big crash of some sort had occurred. I don't know about injuries, but there was at least one ambulance at the time I was around there. There was a mess of broken glass on the roadway.
I then took a different circular route to my destination, and shortly later returned to PA (the N bound side was kept open on ECR) and saw a white car still on it's side(S bound side of ECR, heading towards Mt View, just after Los Altos Ave).
There were a lot of emergency and police officials. I couldn't figure what would have happened in ECR traffic, which tends to be heavy there, to get this car on it's side...did someone speed wildly on ECR or make a right out of Los Altos Ave onto ECR and collide with another car?!
