Santa Monica To Install Vehicle Safety Nets Around Farmer’s Market

SANTA MONICA (CBS) — A vehicle barrier is being installed along two and a half blocks surrounding the Santa Monica Famer’s market, eight years after a deadly accident killed ten people.

The heavy duty cable nets will be set up in June along Arizona Avenue every Wednesday and Friday. The nets are supposed to be able to stop a vehicle from entering the market area.

On July 16, 2003, George Russell Weller, 86, accidentally drove into the Farmer’s Market, killing 10 people and injuring 60.
