Over on the Oni blog, they’ve got a report and a picture from a nearby traffic accident … very nearby, as a truck came through the wall of their office building:
Our office is a corner suite at this wickedly dangerous intersection. We see/hear about 2 wrecks a week, but they usually stay out in the street. Today’s wreck was goofy because one of the trucks involved had its brakes and steering damaged and after being hit, just drove up on the curb and into our wall.
We heard the initial impact in the street and everyone got up to see. I think the consensus was, “uppp…. we got ourselves another one.” I’m glad we got up because just then, our wall got hit and glass flew everywhere. James, our editor-in-chief was about a foot away from where the truck hit.
Luckily everyone’s ok, including the surveying team that was set up out front and had to dive out of the way of the incoming truck.
