A neighbor reached out to us and let us know about this accident Sunday evening, when a van hit a parked car and then collided with a pole after swerving to avoid hitting a pedestrian at the intersection of Caton Avenue and Parade Place around 10pm.
Fortunately, no one was seriously injured. This is at least the second incident at Caton Avenue and Parade Place this year – last winter, a van crashed into the front of an apartment building at 1620 Caton Avenue. After damaging much of the building’s front, the driver left the scene, neighbors said.
Does anyone know of other incidents at this intersection? What do you think can be done to avoid accidents like these in the future?
Many thanks to neighbor Christopher Beaumont for the photos.
