One injured in Elysian Park rollover accident

One woman suffered a minor injury this morning after she lost control of her pick up truck while driving on Stadium Way through Elysian Park.  An officer said the rain-slick road may have been a played in a role the accident as the woman was driving southbound on Stadium Way shortly after 9 a.m.

No other vehicles were involved in the roll over, which took place on the northern edge of the park.  The driver of vehicle suffered a minor laceration and remained at  the scene while she waited for her blue Ford pick up truck to be removed from the road.


  1. First off, I’m glad she’s OK. Second, what played a role in the accident was the second X chromosome.

  2. Slow the F down folks.

  3. Was probably speeding. And that nutcase who wears a tinfoil hat comes to bike lane meetings talking about the dangers of bicycles traveling 18mph. Car dependency is a disease.

  4. That particular curve in Stadium Way is especially bad, was engineered wrong. I identified that decades ago as dangerous because it is not banked correctly. I also found that even at the speed limit, it can be very easy to hydroplane on that curve when it is wet.

    And Phylis, could you please stay on topic. There is no one in this story or the comments with a tin foil hat, not is anyone talking about bicycles. I really think what you wrote shows that you mislabeled who the nutcase is.
