SUV/auto crash sends woman to hospital

A woman in her 20s was taken to Stanford Hospital on Saturday night, Feb. 18, after her car collided with an SUV at San Antonio Road and Nita Avenue and careened onto a lawn.

The accident was reported at about 10:22 p.m., prompting a police and fire response, including a rescue team to extricate the woman from her vehicle.

The fronts of both vehicles were damaged, according to a witness. The light-colored Pontiac, which the woman was driving, appeared to have significantly more damage.

Palo Alto Fire Battalion Chief Niles Broussard said the victim was a young female around 20 years old. She was trapped inside the car but wasn't complaining of injury, according to Broussard. She was taken to Stanford Hospital.

Palo Alto police spokesman Sgt. Rich Bullerjahn on Sunday said a police report had not yet been completed and he could not release information about the accident.

Make no mistake about it, the most selfish, "me-first", "gotta get ahead of you at all costs" drivers are found on the roads of Palo Alto.
What people will do simply to get a bumper in front of someone else on Alma street is repulsive. Ignorant, ego maniacs inhabit those stretches of asphalt. Beware.
