The latest accident to slow the mid-week commute, at shortly after 8 a.m. on Mark West Springs Rd., only served to make a tough morning even tougher.
According to this article on the Press Democrat, it all started with a 5:25 accident on Hwy 101 near the Hooper Ave. off-ramp. Traffic slowed, but impatient drivers were responsible for at least two more collisions in the stalled traffic.
“We have multiple accidents going on right now all over the county,” [CHP Officer Kerri] Post said about 8:15 a.m. “I don't have anything major.”
Her advice to drivers: “Slow down in the rain.” And stay further back from the car in front of you."
Sonoma Valley residents have an added concern, the on-going construction that closes both the left-hand and right-hand shoulder closed due on CA-121, both ways near Millerick Road / Broadway.
