This accident is very unfortunate and sad for everybody involved , less than year ago Mr. Curry’s brother Scott had a major accident at 4 way signal entrance to Cal Poly in an unmarked sheriff vehicle both accidents less than 1 mile from each other in location that is some seriously bad luck .Both Curry’s are SLO Sheriffs .For a very very long time all law enforcement has driven at extreme high speeds for no good reason on Hwy 1 with no lights or sirens to and from the SLO County Sheriff’s Jail Facility.
