Two back-to-back car accidents involving four vehicles caused a traffic jam in front of College of the Canyons on Rockwell Canyon Road Thursday evening.
The wrecks occurred in front of the Performing Arts Center at about 5:10 p.m.
A witness said the the second set of vehicles crashed because they were “looky-loos” and were more concentrated on the accident than the road.
Ambulances arrived minutes after the second car accident.
The major car accident held up traffic and Sheriff’s deputies had to manually signal traffic away from the accidents.
Traffic was so bad leading to the COC entrance on Rockwell Canyon Road, Assistant Superintendent and Vice President of Instruction Jerry Buckley sent out an email to faculty telling them to allow students some leeway on tardiness because of the accident.
