  • RESIDENT says:

    please update us when the traffic is back to normal..thnx

  • Local says:

    Maybe just maybe people should slow down. You’ll get there a lot safer that way. Too much rush rush rush

  • Mike says:

    Don’t blame things on the rush. It’s very windy outside, and with a tornado watch that the Lakewood scoop put out, the suv probably flipped from the tornado winds

  • Anon says:

    Any updates? Is everyone ok?

  • Shuey says:

    Speedy recovery to all.
    Any names for Tehilim?

  • boaring yid says:

    get the buchirim off the road

  • THATS SCARY says:

    I was at that area at 8:30ish and its blocked off coming toward town there is a detour thru Oak street since they are fixing the pole that fell.

  • Right tornado winds. Of course says:

    Yes obviously the tornado winds flipped that SUV. Seriously??? I must ask, was that the only SUV on the road? Oh yeah and it was 12 hours after the tornado watch. Must have definitely been the tornado winds. Unbelievable, I guess we must always have an excuse for poor driving habits. Ridiculous. Blame blame blame.

  • woodstock says:

    Why is it that vehicles always “flip” in this town. One day, there were three. I don’t see this happening anywhere else. I hope everyone is OK.

  • Judge favorably says:

    My neighbor witnessed the car flipping. She said it flipped from the strong wind! So let’s not jump to judge others. I agree everyone should slow down, but if u had been in the car that flipped from the wind, I don’t think I’d appreciate ppls publicly jumping to conclusions. May the hidden in the accident have a refuah shelaima bekarov.

  • Charly says:

    Probably cut off a on coming car or going over the speed. Even if going on speed (if it WAS from winds) then they should have felt it in the wheel and slow down (OR JUST SIMPLY ON THE PHONE)

  • Charly says:

    JUST PUT THE PHONE AWAY. Focus focus focus too windy slow down
