RAW VIDEO: Car Hits Tree on Page Mill Road, Bursts into Flames

The things you see on an afternoon bike ride...

I was cruising down Page Mill Road Friday afternoon after biking to the top of Skyline Blvd and came across this scene, where a car had skidded off the road and slammed into a tree, bursting into flames.

Santa Clara County Sheriff's deputies, CHP and Palo Alto police joined park rangers and firefighters in extinguishing the blaze.

The driver managed to escape unharmed, according to Palo Alto police.

Yes, very lucky no one was hurt! What was the financial cost of this accident to the city? Any ideas? It looks like a lot of police and fire fighters in the video.

@Andrew Boone What was the financial cost to the driver? And the social cost?

wigglesworth, I have no idea - I suppose the financial cost to the driver depends mostly on the details of the driver's auto insurance policy. What do you mean by "social cost"?

Social Cost? I guess our young lead footed driver cant go out Saturday night. The girl he was after will now go for a real man with a car:)

Probably not too much, since the response was largely from Santa Clara County. But good question.
