A single vehicle traffic accident left one person dead around 11 p.m. last night. I happened to be driving by the scene of the accident around midnight. The accident occurred while the driver was traveling east and lost control of his vehicle just past the fountain and slammed into the mesquite tree. I have unconfirmed reports that the driver was at hammerheads bar prior to the accident and was a teacher at the Colegio Americano in Miramar.
This is second fatal traffic accident at this Glorieta in less than a year and the speed of the vehicle was certainly a contributing factor. Perhaps it is time for a speed bump over there to slow traffic down.
