Accident On Hampton Avenue In Manhattan Beach

It’s not that often an accident this bad happens in Manhattan Beach and it’s not on Oriental Boulevard or Shore Boulevard. It’s like Hampton Avenue is the littlest sister, striving to compete but grossly mismatched.

Today it made a mark. Reader Rachel T. wrote in to tell us about a crash at Hampton Avenue and Beaumont Street at around 8:00 a.m. It looks like the car above collided with a silver Nissan. Rachel writes:

Thankfully everyone is ok it seems even a pedestrian who was walking just inches away. But I can’t say the same for the cars, they’re smashed pretty bad … Hopefully there is something we can do like ask for stop signs all along Hampton ave for this isn’t the first time this happened.

Lady, are you seriously proposing traffic safety measures along a Manhattan Beach strip?  Beentheredonethat
