I also updated the diagram to place the car making a left-hand turn onto California in the correct left-turn lane on Brand. My earlier version just roughly placed the NB car on Brand, and I didn't mean to imply that the left turning car wasn't in the proper lane. I stopped by the crash site this afternoon and added the skid marks I observed to the diagram. Remarkably, the demolished bus shelter has already been completely removed.
Here is some more information regarding the major bus stop car crash on Brand yesterday evening from Glendale PD spokesman Tom Lorenz:
A vehicle s/b Brand collided with a vehicle n/b Brand at the intersection of California. The s/b vehicle continued s/b (over 200 feet of skid marks), jumped the curb, and continued s/b on the west sidewalk of Brand. The vehicle sheared off a light post, demolished the bus stop, and sheared off a 25’ tree, then eventually came to rest as it collided with the Japanese and Argentinean restaurants. The vehicle then caught fire in the engine compartment. The fire was extinguished with a fire extinguisher retrieved from the trunk of a patrol vehicle. Both vehicles were totaled and damage spread debris in the area, to include battery acid from a vehicle battery that was broken in half. The driver of the n/b vehicle suffered a broken leg and was transported to USC in stable condition. The driver and two passengers of the s/b vehicle complained of pain; the driver was transported to a local hospital. Fortunately, no pedestrians or restaurant patrons were injured.Thank goodness no one was waiting for a bus or leaving El Morfi. I made a map of the crash based on the new info. I'm speculating that the NB driver was turning left, I don't positively know that but it seems like the most plausible scenario. The Google Maps image is a bit outdated- the sidewalk is currently much wider, which I indicated with the dotted black line.
