      Seems they are always rushing as if they have a death wish. Just hope they don't take innocent drivers with them. I swear, I am dodging cars and trucks daily who are racing, passing on a curve or passing and having to duck back in front of me because of oncoming cars. This guy was lucky this time.

    People drive too damn fast in that area. The speed limit is 20, not 60!!!! SLOW DOWN before someone dies!

      that stretch of road is dangerous! people racing to the ferry or just speeding for fun. Add to that stupid passing and you have a disaster. That is the place for a small speed bump. It is obvious that these small economy cars are not built for this kind of driving. They are too narrow and small. It is hard to get a car flipped without speed. Stop it!

    This is truly a miracle he is still wearing his hat. Good to know that the territory and his relatives avoided another dark day.

    He need to be charge for dangerous driving, and without having any consideration for other persons using that road during those hours. He almost cause the death of innocent people today in what would have been a head on collision.

    Smack in the vicinity of the police station and also in the vicinity of the home.of the district rep drivers customarily exceed the speed limit with no concern which says plenty about the lack of effective policing and respect..

    This incident highlights a growing concern I have had in recent years about the careless way in which many of these young people drive!

    Aerodynamics tells us there are Air Pockets in the Atmosphere when the plane is flying through them notice what happens. Well those same Air Pockets exists on Ground Level as well when you drive into them at an accelerated velocity this can actually flip your vehicle or temporarily black out your conscious for a couple seconds......
