Everett Firefighters had to use the “Jaws of Life” to take the roof off a mini-van that rolled after a t-bone crash at the intersection of Oakes and 25th street early Thursday afternoon. The driver of the van was taken to Providence Regional Medical with non-life threatening injuries. In recent memory there have been at least three T-Bone accidents on Oakes avenue between Everett Avenue and 22nd street since the start of the year. Just two weeks ago and about a block away there was a very serious crash at 24th and Rockefeller. The investigation into the cause of this crash is just getting underway by Everett Police.

    More stop signs will not solve this. People ignore them, and this stuff happens.

    Please retire the term “jaws of life”. So many other tools are used during these situations. It’s use was ftom the early 80’s. Just stop.

    That entire area needs a few more 4-way stops. When I’m driving west from Broadway on those roads, I need to take a “leap of faith” because the cars on either side block the view of the roads going north-south. Of course I look for cars as much as I can, but it only takes one wrong judgement…
