This major traffic situation during a time in which both the High School and Middle School’s students are dismissed (and in close proximity to the site of the accident ) combined with the inclement weather made for dire conditions as traffic was funneled on the southbound side of Fair Oaks and diverted to the other main street, Fremont Ave.

  1. The language in this article is a bit over-the-top, I’d say. The driver of the sedan suffered critical injuries? Does the reporter know what “critical” means? It means really serious, maybe life-threatening. And as far as I know, vehicles don’t sustain “critical” damage.
