Default Almost wrecked

Sorry no pics guys other than a google map view of location. ill get pics if the news reports on it. I didnt want to be the ******* taking pics of a vehicle upside down in a ditch with hurt children in it.



I was going around this curve on my way home for lunch when I noticed a Honda Passport (I think) coming from the opposite direction. I noticed they were hauling ass and starting to cross the centerline. Then they went sideways. I remember quickly looking for an escape route and noticed that to the right i didnt have much shoulder room as you can tell (i was where the circle is on the pic). The shoulder was thin and there is an enbankment drop off right there enough to flip a vehichle. I didnt have time to go the other way and was afraid they would overcorrect and go back into the right lane and still hit me so i went right. I made the right decision as they barely missed me.

I pulled into the next driveway and turned around, i figred they wouldnt get far going that fast. I found them about 1/2 mile down the road upside down in a ditch. I was not the first on the scene, a man was by the car checking on them and slowly people were coming out of their houses to see what happened. One kid said he watced them flip about 30 feet or so. There were children in the car as well. They were all ok, probably hurt though from the flipping.

I went ahead and left as i was not first on scene and the accident didnt involve me. I must say it was crazy and scared the piss out of me.

here is where they flipped, they flipped the length of the line and ended up at the arrow head. I hope the driver goes to jail.
