Classic Fire Hydrant Decapitation Accident at 5th & E, July 10, 2017 (266)

I live on E Street not so far from 5th and over the years I have become accustomed to cars on E attempting to cross 5th from the south to the north being smashed in the side and driven onto the fire hydrant at the corner, sometimes snapping off the hydrant. 

It happened yet again a week or so ago. These events are so repetitive and similar that I sometimes no longer walk over to see what happened. I almost did not bother in this case, but the new ONDNA traffic-calming project prompted me to think some snaps might be helpful. Here they are.
