Minor Crash Closed Part of South Livermore Avenue Thursday

One person suffered minor injuries.

By Bay City News Service
           A street in Livermore was closed to traffic for several hours today as police investigated a
crash that sent one person to a hospital, a police sergeant said.
           Police responded to a report of a collision involving two cars in
the 200 block of South Livermore Avenue at 10:21 a.m., Sgt. John Hurd said.
           A motorist rear-ended another car in front of the post office,
Hurd said.
           He was transported to a hospital to be treated for injuries not
considered life-threatening, the sergeant said.
           The person driving the car that was rear-ended was not injured.
           The collision occurred in a 25 mph zone and Hurd said the cars
were likely driving within the speed limit.
           South Livermore Avenue will remain closed in the area of the
collision until around 1 p.m. as officers investigate the incident, Hurd
said.

I was wondering why they closed down the entire block for that amount of time. It was a fender bender and the one car didn't even look that bad. I figured they had hit a pedestrian and had a fatality with the production made from it.

With the scene I saw I totally thought a pedestrian must have been hit as well! Glad it wasn't as bad as I initially thought...

A fender-bender? Oh come on PD.....shutting down a major road for a couple hours for a FENDER-BENDER? That's a little OVERBOARD don't ya think?

Why does a fender-bender get reported but a major collision does not. First and Mines was closed on Thursday, 12/12 around 3:30 to a significant collision but that was never reported! I was there within minutes of it happening and was concerned and praying for the person trapped in one of the cars.

Did you tell Mr. Noceda that there was such breaking news? If nobody tipped the story to the Patch folks, it probably did not get reported on...and commented on, which probably saved a lot of people around here a bunch of grief and a lot of ranting about all those darned commuters who use Livermore Avenue/Tesla Road/Corrall Hollow as their principal through route from their homes in Patterson and Newman to their jobs in San Jose or what's left of Milpitas these days. Perhaps the Patch staff "dodged a bullet" on that one--or if it wound up in the LPD's weekly police report, perhaps it was reported there if the LPD responded to it, as a sentence. It's Friday morning before Christmas. If you haven't finished your Christmas shopping, perhaps now would be the time to focus on that instead of worrying what the Patch staff covers. Besides, all that worrying may force one to gain weight, get wrinkles, develop high blood pressure and a few other maladies that aren't so pleasant. So relax, take deep breaths in and exhale slowly hopefully ushering in feelings and a sense of calm about one's self, then read the commentary around here and learn to laugh at it. Afterall, this is what we deal with living in Livermore these days, isn't it?

Wow, Californicated1 I think you need to take a chill pill. All I did was ask a simple question. I was not commenting on the Patch's performance. I was genuinely concerned for the person(s) involved in the accident. I did not need a rant about commuters, or my Christmas shopping or whatever else you needed to talk about. Take your own advice and relax.

Not until you take my advice first. Sometimes one has to learn how to take what they dish out. "Ye shall reap what ye shall sow" --Galatians 6:7 Now, "out with the bad air, in with the good..."

Well I had a wonderfully peaceful weekend not listening to you. Seriously your handle is almost pornographic and you are going to quote the Bible to me? Once again, I never once said anything derogatory to the Patch you just chose to take it that way. I was asking a simple question. Now with that I bid you good-bye as you are truly no longer worth my time. The Patch however, continues to be a source of local news and you and your kind only tarnish their website and your vile diatribe towards the commuters was judgmental and you sir, shall reap what you sow. (No, I am not a commuter, I live and work locally.)

That area around the post office is one of the worst spots in town, you have traffic coming from every direction, I'm amazed there aren't more "fender benders"
