there was an accident involving a pedestrian and a car right before fallbrook coming from barrance. the wreck was still there when i was coming home about 10 minutes ago. car had a busted winshield, totally caved in and a no other visible damage, leading me to believe a pedestrian was struck. there were also clothes strewn about on the street leading me to the conclusion i made. ive lived here 20 years and they've NEVER closed the street for just a car accident except when Courtney friends brother killed two people on west yall between barrance and alton. the lights, the cars, the evidence markers, the flares, the cops. the scene just wasnt pretty... god bless thier family. im going to pray for them.

I pulled up just as the ambulance was pulling away. I had to park on the street and walk home because the road I live on was completely blocked off. Very bad indeed.

I remember seeing officers clearing away black screens (always a bad sign)a few months ago on Alton. I believe that is the other accident you are talking about. What happened there?

I was one of the first people to drive their right after it happened yesterday night around 8. I didn't see the actual accident but there was an elderly Asian couple crossing the street and the man got hit. im guessing the the driver was going really fast because his window was broken and the victim's shoes flew off his feet and landed a lot farther away.He was bleeding from the back of his head, forehead, and mouth, with his wife screaming over him (she couldn't speak English so she ran to her house and called her family). i passed by again at 12 and there was like 20 police and investigation cars. it was horrible.

if you wan;t even more detail, the driver was a Caucasian middle-aged man and after it happened he was standing in front of his car on the phone very calmly as if nothing happened. i don't know but if i was him i would be panicking and crying that i did such a terrible thing.

My daughter and I were also there right after it happened..when the 1st cop pulled up. You're right...the caucasian male was standing there with his hands in his pockets, calm as hell. His windshield was broken so he had to have been flying down the Loop and from where he came to a stop, it looked like he blew the stop sign. Does anyone have information on the man that got hit?? It was a horrific scene. We were pretty shaken up just seeing it. I'd really like to know how he is :(
