It started with one car coming to a stop...

The collision was pretty standard as far as crashes go. The three vehicles were all heading in the same direction, North on Curran Highway. One of the vehicles was apparently stopped when the second car struck the first vehicle from behind. The third vehicle followed suit, striking the second car.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
