    From the break marks on the road left by the BMW it is obvious that break failure was not the cause. Break trail shows BMW veering from east bound lane unto west bound lane. Would imagine driver of SUV swerved towards that poor wall to avoid worse collision. Why try to go round that corner at 90 mph.( exaggerating but pretty sure it was over speed limit).

    Driving too fast and not paying attention. Manuel reef has enough visibility not to crash.
