Dangerous guardrails will no longer be installed in California

According to Caltrans, the X-Lite guardrail end treatment system will no longer be used on California highways. An investigation carried out by a local NBC station found that they were struck in at least nine accidents that resulted in fatalities. The state sent a letter to the manufacturer of the product saying that it would be switching to another product that met Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware standards.

California highway crash claims life of marine biologist

Authorities have blamed a six-vehicle pile up on Lakeville Highway in Petaluma on a Chevrolet Silverado driven by an unidentified 19-year-old. The Silverado was westbound during the busy early morning rush hour when it crossed double yellow center lines into oncoming traffic. It collided first with a Prius and killed the driver, a 66-year-old woman who taught at the University of California, Davis. She was a marine biologist with a worldwide reputation. Her colleagues at the Bodega Bay laboratory and in Indonesia where she regularly studied coral reefs mourned her sudden death.
