Grand Junction Police believe a faulty axle is to blame for a two car accident Sunday morning.

Investigators say a truck rear–ended a car and slammed through a sign and right through a fence. The accident happened on the Frontage Road between 23 and 24 Roads.

No one was injured or ticketed.

Grand Junction Police say the axel breaking from the truck combined with wet conditions caused the crash.

    Check further. The guy fell asleep at the wheel and rear ended the other car. The axle broke during the accident, not before. The car he ran into was nearly destroyed. It was gone all the way to the front seat backs. Something fishy is going on here. Check into it.

    The word is spelled axle, not axel!
