The Divvy Wreck
Spotted this on the way to work yesterday. It was disturbing to see what appeared to be a car accident, 10+ feet from the actual street/intersection and very clearly in an area designed for pedestrians (and bicyclists).
I can only assume car hopped the curb and crashed into this Divvy bike station near the 55th Street Metra stop.
This is a horrible intersection, rife with drivers who seem both impatient and inattentive as they pass through. I’m always wary when I’m walking across the street here, because I simply don’t trust the drivers that I’ve seen. The fact that the intersection is all stop signs makes this even more baffling, as I’m not even sure how someone gathers enough speed to do this kind of damage.
