Someone on Reddit said that's the first intersection when you get off some freeway-like road where people go about 80. I also saw something that said she was coming from somewhere she had been drinking.

is it something that was supposed to be another interstate and fizzled out?

no idea, never been there :o

it's .58 miles between lights, so i guess that's enough time to get up to those speeds. the intersection before that is huge, not really a super open stretch of road

I am amazed that anyone would survive that crash. Even if just to stay in the hospital for a few days and die later

Fuckkkkk

Witness Veronica Esquival said she covered her head for protection, as debris was flying wildly.

“All of the sudden, a baby literally flew from the middle of the intersection to the middle of the gas station and landed right on the floor in front of me,” Esquival said. “One of the workers came and saw me with the baby and took the baby out of my hands.”

Three vehicles were obliterated in the collision. At least two other were damaged.

“We have a total of at least six to seven vehicles involved, at minimum, at this time. Three became engulfed in flames,” said CHP spokesman Franco Pepsi.

I wish I could unread that.

For everyone here I swear don’t go on green immediately. I wait at least half a second because I have seen so many people run through lights it’s scary
I'm honking at you mother fucker. Green means go!

I know this intersection well. It's at the bottom of a big down slope and probably .5 mile from the previous light.
A car can easily gain a lot of speed on approach.. But that was not what we just saw. What we saw was a vehicle at wide open throttle.
No brakes. No fast coasting down the hill. That was a 4000lb bullet.
