The Redwood City police just released a statement that they will not seek criminal charges against the driver who fatally collided with a 14-year-old-girl who was riding her bike to school because she was at fault for the accident. The Woodside High freshman was on her way to school around 8:30 a.m. and should have yielded to the GMC pickup that was in front of her, but instead she attempted to make the same turn as the truck. She was hit, run over, and killed, shocking her family, her 1,800-student school, and the entire community.

Just last week, the area in San Mateo named Chemical Way was cleaned of decades of toxic chemical residue because it is the proposed site of the new jail. The Department of Toxic Substances Control had recently declared that the land was too hazardous for residential use because it was so permeated by volatile organic compounds, yet the San Mateo County Sheriff's Department was hopeful that this cleanup would help. Even though the county cleaned the land to commercial-level standards, it is still too hazardous to meet residential toxicity standards.
