Second non-injury accident in two days occurs on Pearl Street

Two traffic halting, but non-injury afternoon accidents have taken place on Pearl Street over the last two days.

On Thursday afternoon around 4:15 p.m. a silver sedan collided with a sports utility vehicle at the intersection with Cuvier Street.

The accident occurred in the middle westbound lane, in front of Jack in the Box. Details on the accident were not available as the police officer was still interviewing the drivers. A silver sedan driven by a teenager sustained front end damage and the SUV had damage on its front bumper. No injuries were apparent.

The same intersection was the scene of a crash on April 30 when a car turning left onto Cuvier struck a bicyclist.

And on Wednesday afternoon, a half block away, a teenage girl crossing the street midblock was unharmed when she was was hit by a car on Pearl Street.

The girl crossed from the alley next to Pearl Hand Car Wash and was hit by a black Mazda around 2 p.m. According to a policewoman, neither the driver nor the pedestrian saw each other.

The girl went up onto the fender and fell off the side of the car, the officer said. She told firefighters and police officers that she felt no pain, so therefore no police report or further action was taken.

“I can’t believe nothing happened,” the driver said. “She should have a broken bone or something.”
