Hi, anything on the accident last week at Moraga Rd and Moraga Way, just before school started? My daughter was on the JM school bus and passed it on the way to school. I have heard several people talking about it, but haven't read any details. Thanks

Had one at Moraga Road and Country Club where a young man was hit in the crosswalk and taken to hospital as a result. Could that be it?

Yes. Right at Country Club. I was also interested in more info, but couldn't find any.

We had one on Sept. 11 at 7:21 at Canyon Road and Country Club drive when a driver turning left onto NB struck and knocked down a 22-year-old man, who was taken to Kaiser and treated for injury. That was a big day for us, sadly...

Thanks for the info. That is a very dangerous spot, especially during commute hours. NB drivers come out of a curve at 45-50 mph (limit is 35) juggling hot coffee and a bagel. Very dangerous for cross traffic and pedestrians at that time of day. I hope the young man will be OK.

Was it the motorcyclist who was killed?
