Crashes at Houndog's

by: ERIC NORBERG - This peculiar-looking crash on Milwaukie Avenue at Holgate occurred in broad daylight - at 4:30 pm on March 23.S.E. Milwaukie Avenue at Holgate Boulevard sees many automobile accidents, and another one occurred on the rainy evening of March 6, at about 7:25 pm, in front of Houndog’s Bar and Grill and Jacob’s Heating and Air Conditioning.

Two of the three cars involved wound up facing each other in the early evening darkness, making it clear that one of them was not where it was supposed to be. The driver of the third car managed to get his vehicle into the Jacob’s entrance to help clear the street. No injuries were reported, but traffic was backed up till the vehicles were removed.

Yet another such mishap occurred at about 4:30 pm, in broad daylight, on Friday afternoon, March 23. An odd-looking crash put a small sedan wedged northbound between two vehicles waiting in the southbound lanes.

No injuries were reported in that crash either, but southbound traffic on Milwaukie was backed up for some distance as a result of it.
