A crash outside of Motel 6 in San Luis Obispo on Wednesday totaled two cars and resulted in firefighters extricating one person from a vehicle.

Shortly before 6 p.m., a caller reported a crash on Calle Joaquin between Motel 6 and Highway 101. Firefighters extricated one driver with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. Emergency personnel transported the driver to a local hospital.

The other driver sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

San Luis Obispo police officers are investigating the crash, which they suspect was caused by excessive speed.

I understand some lost tourist did a left hand turn right into Motel 6 without looking. If someone was looking they couldn’t miss an oncoming car.

Many needless traffic crashes could be mitigated by compliance with the California Vehicle Code, NOT driving at excessive speeds for conditions, and courteous driving.


Ridiculous. We need speed governors on these dangerous cars now!
