Jetton blocked near Mountainview

Sept. 10.  A late-model BMW traveling outbound on Jetton near Mountainview plowed into the rear of a large but stationary dump truck parked in the right lane. Jetton was blocked at around 930 am and remained blocked at 955 am.

The force of the impact pushed the truck forward about 18 inches. The driver of the BMW, a female, was able to walk to an awaiting ambulance at about 950. The driver of the truck, who was inside the cab at the time, said he was unhurt.

UPDATE: Police Wednesday morning said the BMW as traveling at 35 mph.

The accident occurred in a two-lane area of Jetton, just west of the intersection with John Connor. Repaving is under way near Mountainview on Lakehouse Pointe.

Jetton inbound was open around 10:15 am but outbound at the accident scene was blocked.

Back in October, there was a failed attempt to raise the speed limit in the four-lane segment of Jetton.

The dump truck was pushed about 18 inches, according to the truck driver

  1. Please dont let the facts get in the way of a good story. Brand new 2019 X6 M and had just pulled out off of Harbor Light where the driver lives. No speeding and road construction truck was parked on unmarked part of Jetton.

    • What’s your point? The article does not say speeding. The driver did plow into the back of a parked truck. Here’s the definition of late model as per Wikipedia:
      A “late model car” is a car which has been recently designed or manufactured, often the latest model. (An “early model car” or “classic car” is a car old enough to be of historical interest; there is no usual intermediate term.)

      • At the top of this post it reads “speed on Jetton appears to be a factor”. So, the post did mislead people to think speed was a factor in the accident.

        • Our FB post said: ‘Speed on Jetton said to be a factor’ because the people on the scene were pointing out the skid mark, maybe 18 inches long, from the dump truck, which was parked on the side of the road prior to being hit by the late-model car.
