I used to commute down Comm Ave in the Back Bay. Almost weekly I'd see someone turn the wrong way onto the road, most often heading outbound in the inbound lane as what happened today.

I'm surprised accidents like that aren't more common. I hope no one was seriously injured.

… crossing or driving on Comm Ave was not fun. Biking down it is stressful.
Not to excuse the driver’s wrong turn but maybe if Comm Ave wasn’t allowed to be a speedway, this wouldn’t have ended in a crash.
