This section of freeway is a death trap (there is alway derbies left in the road) on 8-31-11 my daughter Hit a mattress laying in the slow lane at 10:15PM (right before the Crown Valley Park Way off ramp) it flipped her Honda Fit then hit a light post Almost Killed her, she survived with Brain Trauma, Fractured Ribs, bruised lung, and broken Jaw. We Just moved here to an Acute Rehab after almost a month in the hospital. 2 week later My wife Hit a large Truck tire that had unraveled across the slow lane on the 5 south in front of Junipero Serra not a mile away from my daughters accident and that totaled her Car and caused her Whiplash. My point is CALTRANS NEED TO PATROL AND KEEP THIS SECTION OF FREEWAY CLEAN first and formost...
