17th Ave. S. was blocked off at the Edgehill intersection earlier today (9/16) following an accident in front of Ocean Way Studios.
The busy street has reopened and Ocean Way Director of Operations Pat McMakin gave MusicRow the scoop on the witness accounts. First and foremost, he knows of no serious injuries as a result. According to reports, the accident occurred when hit songwriter/musician Jim (Moose) Brown (Grammy winner for “It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere”) was driving down 17th Ave. this morning and a car on Edgehill ran the red light and they collided. Witness reports say that the car headed east on Edgehill ended up in the Ocean Way drive, hitting three parked cars, and pushing Brown’s red truck into the light pole and fire hydrant, over the rose bushes.
