MONTECITO HEIGHTS — A speeding car crashed into parked vehicles this afternoon in the 3600 block of Griffin Avenue, the third collision in recent months on this stretch of the street, according to one resident.
A blue car heading south on Griffin smashed into a parked vehicle, which then hit a parked SUV at about 12:15 pm, said Matt Johnson, who lives near the crash scene. “I heard the impact and came out of my house to see the driver emerge from the blue car, remove [an Amazon delivery and laptop computer], have a verbal confrontation with the residents of the house before fleeing the scene,” Johnson said. It’s not clear what caused the crash or if the driver who suffered any injuries, Johnson said.
Two other crashes also involving speeding vehicles have taken place on this stretch of Griffin Avenue within the past nine months, Johnson said. One vehicle flipped over at the end of a high-speed chase, and the other involved an SUV that flipped over about a month ago in broad daylight, he said.
“This stretch of Griffin Avenue is purely residential and needs to have speed bumps installed to keep the many children and elderly who live on this road safe,” Johnson said.
