  • Two-car accident closes East Road for an hour; now open

    "There's a first time for everything," RPM Automotive owner Larry Rich said.

    That's because Wednesday afternoon was the first time he towed a vehicle he was actually the driver of.

    At 1:45 p.m. Rich was heading westbound on East Road in a black Toyota 4Runner when a white Chevrolet van pulled out from the Central Avenue intersection clipping his rear bumper. The impact caused the rear axle to break and the truck to spin and flip onto the driver's side, according to Los Alamos Police Officer David Boe.

    Rich - who was unharmed and climbed out from the vehicle through the passenger side door - said the car wasn't even his, but rather one he was repairing.
