A potential traffic tragedy was averted on Monday when a woman whose car would not stop accelerating on Foothill Boulevard was able to stop the vehicle, thanks to the instructions of a Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station dispatcher. The woman, a 40-year-old resident of Sunland, and her daughter, 5, were eastbound on Foothill Boulevard at 10:55 a.m., approaching Sport Chalet Drive, when their car's accelerator became stuck, forcing the vehicle to move at 20-25 miles per hour. The woman called 911 from her cell phone, and said, sobbing, “There are cars in front of me and I can't stop.” The 911 operator patched the woman through to the local Sheriff's day shift dispatcher, Richard Engersbach.

For La Cañada Flintridge residents Barbara and John Burrows this past week has been an emotional roller-coaster ride. A week ago today they were contacted by the Los Angeles Police Department notifying them that after a 14-year search they had apprehended the truck driver who fled the scene after he smashed into the car of their son, Doug, leaving him to die in his burning vehicle on a downtown LA street. The suspect was arrested at the border between Mexicali, Mexico and Calexico in the U.S. John Burrows was asked by a reporter at a press conference held Monday at LAPD's Central Traffic Department, if he felt a sense of closure now that the driver of the truck had been caught and charged with manslaughter.

As the season for prom and graduation events nears, school, city and state officials are unveiling separate campaigns to help curb underage drinking. At La Cañada High School, the Grim Reaper will walk the campus and pluck selected students from their classes every 15 minutes in a program that seeks to drive home the fact that alcohol-related traffic collisions claim a life in the United States roughly every 15 minutes. At Crescenta Valley High School, a federally funded effort to combat teenage drinking is in its first year and the school's seniors are receiving information on the legal consequences of underage drinking, said Susan Hunt, supervisor of Project SUCCESS.

Public safety and school officials are bracing for a two-car collision they expect to take place at 9:20 a.m. Tuesday on Oak Grove Drive, directly in front of La Cañada High School. An intoxicated driver will be involved, and at least one of our own teens will die, maybe more. We know that at least a few will be injured, and the underage drunk behind the wheel of one of those cars will be arrested. Of course this is theater with a very specifically targeted audience, and all the youth participants will, by Thursday, be completely healthy.
