Debris in Somerville

Roving UHub photographer Nick reports:

there was what I can only assume was more than a simple fender bender a week ago on the Arlington/Somerville line at the intersection of Route 16 and Broadway. The debris from the accident is all on the Somerville side of the street: parts of a quarter panel, side mirrors, lots of glass. One enterprising young (five-year-old?) kid was jumping up and down on it as I drove past yesterday. Safety first though: he was wearing a helmet.
