34th Street and 39th Avenue Crash
The most dangerous intersection in Gainesville claimed another pair of vehicles on February 27th, 2013. A pickup truck was heading south on 34th Street when it was struck in the side by a van heading east on 39th Avenue. The pick-up was found laying on it's side and the front of the van was smashed in. Police say none of the injuries are life-threatening. Officials say they are in the early stages of the investigation so they cannot determine who is at fault just yet.
"At this time, we don't know who had the right of way. We're still in the preliminary stages of determining what occurred," Whitney Stout (Gainesville Police Department Officer) said.
Some of the travel lanes on the two roads were blocked off for an hour after the crash. The roads are back open now. Last April, the Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization ranked the Top Ten Most Dangerous Intersections in the area, and the intersection at 39th Avenue and 34th Street was the number one on the list.
