Huckleberries Online

“It was just an accident,” said Billy Colleran, pictured above.

At about 9:30 a.m. he went to fetch some coffee for his buddy’s girlfriend at the Starbucks near Pines and Sprague. Leaving the drive-thru with wallet and beverage in hand, Colleran mistakenly hit the gas instead of the brake, he said. In a split second, the 18-year-old recent U-high grad and his black Chevy Corsica plunged through a cyclone fence and into a pit sizeable enough to obscure an oversized semi trailer.
