Seat belts probably saved the lives of two men Friday afternoon. The men were involved in a collision about 4 p.m. at the intersection of Glenoaks Boulevard and Concord Street. The crash caused one of the men's vehicles, a Ford Explorer, to roll over onto its roof. While the crash and its cleanup drew a crowd, the men were able to walk away because they were wearing their seat belts, Glendale Fire Battalion Chief Bob Doyle said. Neither man suffered injuries in the accident.

But the wait to get those tires replaced is growing longer by the day, particularly at Star Ford on Brand Boulevard, where the waiting list is reportedly five months long.
