Pothole Incident on the 710
“My name is Sam Benedick.
On 2/8/17 at 12:10 pm I had a pothole incident.
I was going north on the 710. In the second leftmost lane around a CORNER there was a gigantic pothole deeper than I’ve ever seen, I had no time to react safely so I went over it. My tire pressure read low immediately and I heard rattling from the outside, knowing something was wrong. A minute later I broke down on the right side of the 710 (safely, thank goodness) right before the exit To Willow St West. I called AAA and they sent a tow truck out.
This was around the W Shoreline Dr entrance on the 710 North in the second leftmost lane, before the freeway becomes perfectly straight.”
Mr. Benedick’s right front tire was damaged; it needed to be replaced and then the car needed a front-end re-alignment. Total damages: $421.00.
