    I know the Beacon-Mountfort intersection well. It can be quite dangerous, especially if you are trying to make a left turn onto Mountfort from Beacon as you’re going towards Kenmore Square. Your view of oncoming traffic is obscured by the rise in the street as it goes over the Mass Pike, which is so close to the intersection that if you see the car coming, it’s already too close for you to make the turn. So basically you have to wait until you can’t see any cars coming, and then gun it before the next car comes over the bridge. My guess is the cabbie was doing that as the girls crossed the street right in front of him, and didn’t have time to stop…
