Video: Dude, why is my car on its side?

Photo by @ericsteuer

Early Saturday morning, reader Eric S. heard a loud noise outside his house on 15th Avenue near Clement around 5:30am.

“The crash woke me up, which made me mad because I was dreaming of some seriously awesome s**t,” Eric wrote.

A woman was driving her station wagon down the street when she hit a parked car and managed to flip her vehicle on its side.

SFPD and a tow truck came, eventually putting the wagon back on its feet, which you can watch in the video below. FF to the :48 mark for the big drop.

Between this and the 6.0 quake at 3:20am on Sunday morning, Eric had some seriously fitful sleep this weekend. Hang in there, dude.

  1. I’ve seen a Land Rove on it’s roof. White girl was texting. On 12th Ave.

  2. Gotta watch out for those parked cars jumping out on you. Too bad there weren’t some pedestrians to absorb the impact. Any word on whether this person will have to retest for their license? Oh yeah, now I’m having the wild dreams.

  3. Which is more sad – that someone would type an email to the blog using an expletive, or that the blog editor would then reproduce it, thinking it OK to simply replace the vowel with an asterisk? We should neither endorse nor promulgate the descent into base, scatological expression.

  4. Sierrajeff, you seem like a super fun dude

  5. Jeff, I’m sorry, but this is the last time we can tolerate these outbursts on richmondsfblog.com. Once again, I want to remind you that the voting in last month’s neighborhood election was VERIFIED and stands as is, in spite of your complaints (and numerous snippy comments such as the above). The Richmond Neighborhood’s residents selected me, albeit by a narrow margin, to edit this blog and I take this role very seriously. As we’ve discussed numerous times, you are free to run to be editor when the position is back up for election in October.


  6. Election? Verified? Now I’m totally puzzled.
    Where’s Sarah B. and what have you done with her? πŸ™‚

    (That being said, this blog is a marvel whether it’s a one- or multi-person labor of love…keep up the great work).

  7. β€’ We had two of these in the Haight last year, both because of speeding. Naturally our SFPD Captain at the time, Greg Corrales, sprung into action and started ticketing bicyclists “with a sense of entitlement.” No psychoanalysis of the people entitled to speed everywhere.

    (We have a new Captain now.)

  8. @Billy – uh, what?

    First, this is the first time I recall you chiding me for something I posted.

    Second, what I said was pretty objective and impersonal. My comment was that I thought it was in poor form to allude unnecessarily to an explitive. I can’t possibly see how anyone would characterize that as an “outburst”; it’s certainly not like I criticized you as a person or made a boorish remark. (And I’ve certainly seen a heck of a lot worse in these comments section that my comment above!)

    Third, be careful who you alienate – I was one of the only people to speak up for you over the whole “Officer Unfriendly” thing.

  9. Jeez ed, cry over spilled milk much? So a guy took isue with something you wrote — you going to go all Kim Il Sung on him?

  10. Call me crazy but I have a feeling Billy is not really the editor of this blog and was just messing with you, weirdos.

  11. Holy fuck Sierrajeff, could you be more delicate and ridiculously sensitive. Shit is hardly a terrible thing to say on a website, especially one that is obviously not catering to childrens content.

    The world does not revolve around you. The world does not bow to your special delicate feelings and rules. You are not special. As Stephen Fry said:

    β€œIt’s now very common to hear people say, ‘I’m rather offended by that.’ As if that gives them certain rights. It’s actually nothing more… than a whine. ‘I find that offensive.’ It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. ‘I am offended by that.’ Well, so fucking what?”

    So what if you’re offended? Good for you. Deal with it, don’t try to make the rest of the world as boring and lame as yourself.
