Mercedes vs. Traffic Signal Light Pole
At approximately 6:30 this evening, somebody ran a red light at the intersection of Franklin and Grove Streets, crashing into the Mercedes above which then plowed into the traffic signal light pole next to the Opera House.
Surprisingly, the Mercedes won and the traffic signal light went down.
It was fortunate that the San Francisco Ballet finished Program 7 the evening before, or there would have certainly been pedestrians injured or killed by the flying traffic signal.
Say what one will about planet-destroying, gas-guzzling Mercedes cars, they are extraordinary feats of engineering.
