Wednesday Wreck of the Week has died a slow death since I moved to LA. I thought for sure that there’d be more accidents to photograph, given the vast population of drivers out here.

Instead of Kentucky State Troopers cordoning off an area on the expressway for five hours because a car ran off into the median, the LAPD clears accidents within moments of the event.
