Rayvt,

In the 20 years we lived in Algonquin, twice there was a turnover accident at one particular city-street intersection with a tight turn to get onto the bridge.

I know what you mean. The intersection in front of our house has a lot of accidents/roll-overs. It is a T intersection with the traffic approaching the stop sign on a downhill with a slow right curve. The truckers do not seem to want to believe all the big, shiny retro-reflective signs.

Numerous cars, pickup trucks, a dump truck full of gravel pulling a tractor on a trailer and a 6,000 gallon vacuum truck filled with salt water have either rolled over or run straight through the intersection(to where there is no road).

Actually, the next intersection east is probably the best for strange accidents. A bunch of crotch rockets were headed out of the canyon back toward town. We got the call for the accident. When we arrived, the motorcycle was 8 feet above ground in a mesquite tree. The rider was another 50 feet beyond in a field. Missed the turn.
