  1. Sara, you need to look at a map! walnut Blvd
    crosses Camino diablo and goes to los vaqueros res.

  2. Kim, glad you are fine, that looks like a horrible accident.

    I hope people see the value in the FD responding to “medical calls”. I’m pleased to see AMR and helicopters were there to assist and get these people quickly to the hospital. I doubt the ambulance people were equipped to handle the extrication process so there is a huge value to all of these responders working as a team. It looks like the accident ended up in tall, dry grass ….they are lucky it didn’t catch fire.
    In one photo I see at least 7 firemen opening the car and trying to free the passengers.
