    He was probably speeding going nowhere fast. Like many others on the road.

    God bless that, that tree was there or else, don't know where they would have ended up. On the other, that piece of road seems to always litter with debris, either concrete spill, gravel like right now its full of that or oil. The authorities have to do something with those vehicle transporting material with been properly secured.

    these trucks loaded with gravel, sand and cement are to be blamed especially on that road. right now there is so much debris on the road that it makes it hard to keep control on the road. the drivers of these trucks want to load them so high that they spill over the top going up that steep hill and that road was just fixed. the driver didn't stick around because who will he/she answer to. fine these overloaded trucks for the debris they leave on that hill and make them clean it up right away

      Wtf are you talking about?

      Drivers need to slow down and they will have better control. I drive at reasonable speeds depending on road conditions, but very often I get hotshot drivers tail gating me. Sometimes they overtake and cut in front of you to avoid head on collisions with oncoming traffic.

      These drivers are not just reckless, they are stupid.
