We just got word that there was a “pretty nasty” car accident at the intersection of Bedford Avenue and Emmons Avenue within the past 40 minutes or so.

We’re told one of the vehicles broadsided the other, and then they both spun out into the lightpole at the northwest corner of the intersection. The airbags of both vehicles were deployed, but a person at the scene said that no one was injured.

Drive safely, folks. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.

        Agreed. If you were watching the road and not the helicopters this never would’ve happened, local.

            I know that the President was here today and once last week but this has been going on for over a week. They are flying low and are really loud thats the only reason i notice and i live a block from the beach and that where they are. No one else noticed around here?

          • http://www.nedberke.com Ned Berke

            Fairly certain it’s all for the presidential visit. Perhaps they do training runs and such, and that’s why you’ve seen them in the in-between.

          • Local Broker

            Speculation. Somethings going on and you better find out about it.

            Maybe it’s tied to the nuclear disaster drill they’ve been running in Manhattan all this week over by the U.N. also?

          Sorry, I thought that was on the Manhattan Beach side where sand
          builds up (curbside) along the bay.
          I edited and am just guessing on the issue.

    I saw a motorcycle and a minivan collide at the same intersection last summer. The lady in the minivan was making a left turn and didn’t pay attention.

        Is that what your 2 daddies taught you mommy should look like?

        • nolastname

          I don’t get this bitch stuff. If someone calls a person a bitch it’s not good.
          If someone says, “that bitch is bitchin’ “it’s good. Go figure.

          • Faba

            Well it all depends how the word “bitch” is used. In this particular situation he wants to demean me by calling me a “bitch”. What he (and I’m sure it’s a he) wants to establish here is his superiority by lowering me to level of social inferiority and also to present me as more female like implying his physical dominance. The word also gives him “street” credit.
            What he does not understand is that he actually reveals his discomfort with females. He might have mommy issues or perhaps his own inadequacy emotional and/or physical, (perhaps small penis) prevents him from successfully interacting with women and sustain a healthy relationship. Unable to understand or correct his own flaws he only left with one option, resenting women. That is why in his eyes to show his “manliness” he has to call me a “bitch”.
            Also as far as “street credit” goes, he does not realize how complex the use of the word “bitch” is. Besides the direct derogatory meaning we are all familiar with the word “bitch” is more often used as term of endearment and often used to show deep feeling and emotional attachment to a female partner. Perfect example would be Notorious B.I.G’s song “Me & My Bitch”. I quote: “It didn’t take long before the tears start. I saw my bitch dead with the gunshot to the heart, And I know it was meant for me.” No one will refuse street credibility of Biggie Smalls and as you can see while at first glance it sounds like Biggie is put his woman down but in fact he has great feeling of sorrow and love for his fallen woman.

            Finally, Guest, trolling Internet with “your mother is a bitch” is so noobish and not creative that I feel sad for you. Remember my women hating, small penis friend, I’m troll by blood not relation, I’m your Biggie in the troll game and you are Park Slope hipster at MC party.

            Perhaps our little guest doesn’t realize that calling a someone a “bitch” is actually an admission of inferiority. He can’t win intellectually so he whines. The “mother” insult shows that he has the intellectual capacity of an eleven year old. Essentially, all women reduce him emotionally to the state of a child that was refused a new toy. He probably doesn’t do much better with men either.

    That is a bad corner. Seems like nobody likes to slow down to make the turns there. Ive also noticed that alot of people speed up to avoid the red lights.
