Another Wreck on Cottage Grove


Drizzle produces wet pavement. Nothing new there. Crazy drivers who must speed up or down Cottage Grove Avenue SE in Cedar Rapids, regardless of the road conditions eventually lose control of their vehicle and end up in this ditch. A police officer tells me that he regularly patrols this stretch of road to catch speeders. But despite his effort, turning road indicators and speed limit signs the situation repeats itself three or four times a year.


The scene was filled with emergency responders and neighbors. No word yet about the make of the vehicle and the condition of the driver or any passengers. That's all from this spot until next time...
