blog home Car Accident Trolley, Mail Van Collide and Injure Two

By Renee Nordstrand on February 4, 2010

A trolley and U.S. postal service van collided Wednesday morning, injuring two people, including a man in a wheelchair, the San Diego Tribune reports.

The crash occurred at Park Boulevard and G Street in downtown San Diego when the trolley was proceeding through a green light, northbound on Park Boulevard, trolley passenger John Lyman reported. The mail van, which was traveling on G Street, did not stop with the rest of traffic at the intersection and struck the trolley, the witness recounted.

While police are still investigating the official cause of this incident, it appears that the postal van may have been at fault for failing to stop at a red light at the traffic intersection of Park Boulevard and G Street.  Contributing factors such as inattention, use of a cell phone, or the use of alcohol and drugs are still unknown.
