Sometime during mid-afternoon of Tuesday, May 23, 2017, a vehicle going westbound on N 185th crashed into two street trees in front of the Shoreline Police station. The vehicle left a trail of parts along the street.

The trees were so badly damaged that they had to be removed by City crews. You can see them working in the left distance on the second photo.

Thanks to Shoreline resident Jennifer Klock who sent in these photos, taken while the clean-up was going on.

The trees would have survived by using good ol duck tape, if they were just damaged on the trunks, even if the were propped up and stabilized with poles.

Great place to run your car off the road! And hurray for the trees protecting any bikers or walkers on the sidewalks. We probably need to consider concrete barriers interspersed with the trees.
