29th Moonlight Run last night and Stanford Football today.
Just got back from taking a short cut through Google as it was backed up SB from Embarcadero to south of Shoreline. It seemed to be at a standstill. Can't be Stanford game as sb traffic would have been leaving at Embarcadero. Must be the weather!
Right, it's southbound traffic that's backed-up past Embarcadero, not northbound. Maybe it's that California drivers fall apart when it rains.
Could they possibly be completing the extended construction? Nah.
Someone just sent me this youtube video taken at 2.30 this afternoon
Traffic reports (AM radio) said a northbound truck overturned in the rain and hit the divider, knocking concrete into the southbound lanes. I opted for 280 instead.
@Driver: Why was that person taking a video while driving, especially with a child in the car? It's illegal to do that, not to mention stupid and dangerous.
Thanks for the info!
@Freeway, the videographer was in the back seat. I assume the driver was in the front seat, probably the guy whose window reflection appears at upper right resembling the YouTube account profile photo.
@Driver, thanks for the link. 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. I watched us land on the moon, but could never have predicted this.
I do not know the person who took the video, but it was posted and shared on Facebook and I got it from one of my friends.
I think the camera was a back seat passenger. I posted it because I felt people who were stuck in the traffic may have liked to know.
I have not seen anything about how serious the injuries were. It looks quite a horrendous accident and I heard that they were still working on the center median many hours later and the traffic was bad all evening.
I believe there were bad accidents all over due to the heavy rain yesterday.
