There was a nasty looking accident on Sunday on Bacon St. by the train tracks. An SUV plowed into a large tree. I didn't see anybody hurt, but hopefully they were OK. The air bags had been deployed and the front of the car was destroyed.

Looked to me as though that Woburn teenager both accelerated AND breaked.
