"That's why I won't buy an import veh no matter the brand or the hype put out by Madison ave. I will stay with the well built AMERICAN MADE vehicle.....be it Ford, Chev (GM), or Chrysler...."

Besides Chevrolet (and Toyota for a day or so), one other American car company had a model named "Suburban". Who knows what that make is?

Once upon a time, a journalist would have interviewed people, taken accurate notes, and written a story. The story would then have been submitted to an editor for approval. Once approved, then research would have checked facts, style would have checked consistency, and proofreading would have checked for spelling and grammatical errors before final editorial approval to send it to typesetting. These days, the speed of publication is paramount. Errors may be fixed later.

I for one am glad that the new style of journalism coming out for the future will require all small details to be in line before an article is printed.... Can you imagine the problems if I had driven by the accident on purpose and found out the car description was wrong???? All that time wasted waiting in traffic only to find the make and model of car was wrong.

In the future articles will not be printed until all information has been reviewed. for car accidents this will include but is not limited to the make and model of the car, the drivers name age sex, as well as any pets names the person might own. Any mailmen, dog walkers, and or people walking within a five mile radius we should list these people in order by name age and what type of job they have. How many police responded, if the car involved was two toned, pin stripped, or any rust.

At this particular accident, my car was parked less than 6" from the curb. I know because we talked about it when we parked yesterday afternoon. Poorly parked cars were not the cause of this wreck but I am anxious to find out what was. And I am very glad the young woman is going to be okay.

hujiko must be from back eat. I didn't know that cars can stand until I watched "Parking Wars" and learned the "No Standing" signs actually means "No Parking". However, he/she has a point about how some people "stand" their cars along some streets!

"when it clipped a parked vehicle and rolled over"

This isn't surprising. Motorists routinely park too far from the curb in this particular area, which causes northbound traffic to have to cross the centerline on a regular basis. Perhaps the city should begin ticketing those who do not adequately clear the roadway when standing.

Glad to hear this instance wasn't very serious.

Well, that explains that..I was doing some computer upgrade work for a business near 9th and Mississippi and I heard all the commotion. Glad to hear the driver will be OK.

Oh heavens yes ! Because by this being a RAV makes the story entirely different, Whew now it all makes perfect sense. Do you not realize that the LJW only reports what they receive from the PD..

"Emergency crews responded around 10:15 p.m. to extricate the woman from a gray Toyota suburban."

I think that's a RAV4. A "Suburban" is a large vehicle sold by General Motors as a Chevrolet.
