Because no holiday weekend would be complete without a spate of tragedies on the local news, we'll start with this one, which is awful: a family of four, on their way home from a Thanksgiving vacation in Maui, were all killed instantly when a MINI Cooper traveling 100 mph on Lakeville Highway broadsided their minivan. The Maloney family's minivan was at the intersection of Hwy 37 and Lakeville Hwy, traveling home to Sonoma from SFO, when they were hit. The 19-year-old MINI Cooper driver is in serious condition died in the hospital on Sunday. Several other cars were involved in the accident but passengers only sustained minor injuries. Anyway, sorry again for the early Monday morning blues.
