Lights Out, Crash, Crash Crash

The car hit some sort of electrical doodad ... I think.

The car hit some sort of electrical doodad ... I think.

I was at the Spectrum today when the electricity went out, for a few minutes. I thought it was from all of the air conditioning units working overtime. By the way, didn’t every single weatherperson say it was going to cool down? Whatever.

So anyhoo, this electrical snafu happened around 2:30 p.m. or so. When I was walking to my car, which was parked near Target, a short while later I think I discovered the cause of the short-lived power outage. I’m assuming this car crashed into what appears to be an electrical transformer is what made everything go wonky for a few minutes. However, we all know what it means to assume.

Did anyone else happen to see this? What a bummer of a way to kick-off Labor Day weekend. Speaking of … stay safe everyone!

Two more photos after the jump.


Notice the airbag and the two people sitting on the curb. Bummer!

That's the 5 freeway carpool lane above.

    Fun times. They must have been going fairly fast for the airbags to deploy.

    Airbags typically deploy with impact speeds over 30-35…took skill to screw up this badly.
