Scary (traffic) stories

I almost hit a van on Kearny in SF today; he was straddling the turn lane on the right and the center lane (where I was), so pedestrians could pass on the street he was turning into. I flicked the wheel so fast…it seemed like an even chance whether the car would hit him or not. Fortunately, not.
On the way home from SF, the radio reported blockage, a 20-police car chase on Holly Street–but they didn’t report the accident further south on 101 North, opposite lane from me, with 3 fire trucks, an ambulance, two stopped cars, and what looked like a crushed black car with its wheels in the air, flipped over.
Ugh. Scary.
