Sanchez was traveling east on the 210 freeway near Towne Avenue when he was involved in a minor crash, according to CHP officials... Sanchez's Smart Car was disabled and remained in the fast lane of the freeway without it's lights on, officials said.
Shortly after the initial crash, a motorist in a 1996 Toyota Camry rear-ended the Smart Car... The driver of the Camry was taken to Pomona Valley Community Hospital with minor to moderate injuries.
This was a Camry versus a Smart Car. You can only imagine, say, a Lincoln Navigator hitting one. Or a semi.
And these are the kinds of cars that the Obama EPA intends all of us to drive, at the trifling cost of only $6,700 per car.
That car didn't seem to be very smart!
$6700 per car? I'll take one!
Wow what a comment.. Antonio was a co-worker and good friend. He was on his way home from work as a bus driver making sure everyone got home safe but that night he didnt. Has some respect for family before putting stupid comments.
Thanks for helping me with details of this tragic accident.
When we look at fatalities in smart cars over the years we are seeing that the fatality rate is lower than average. We are getting about 50-75% fatality rate using FARS data.
My condolences to the family and friends of Antonio.
