Driving the Verdugo Wash
January 27, 2012 § 4 Comments
A unfortunate story about how our local creeks don’t look all that different from our freeways: Yesterday a woman drove her car down an access ramp and into the concrete Verdugo Wash. The Verdugo Wash (or Arroyo Verdugo) runs through the city of Glendale and enters the L.A. River across from Griffith Park.
The driver apparently thought she was on a freeway and reportedly accellerated to about 70 miles per hour. She whizzed past county maintenance workers, before she clunked down a series of steps and stopped near where San Fernando Road goes below the 134 Freeway.
