Read The Caption on the 2nd photo and then look at the 3rd photo

Look at the pictures above and you can see where this driver broke through the guardrail, on the right side of the culvert, where the people are standing on the road, pointing. The pick-up was traveling about 75 mph from right to left when it crashed through the guardrail.  It flipped end-over-end, bounced off and across the culvert outlet and landed right side up on the left side of the culvert, facing the opposite direction from which the driver was traveling.  The 22-year-old driver and his 18-year-old passenger were unhurt except for minor cuts and bruises.


Now look at the 3rd picture below...


The above-displayed photographs depict a December 2006 accident in which the driver of 1991 GMC pickup slid off the road onto the right shoulder, overcorrected when he turned back to the left, and crossed over the opposite lane of the highway before crashing though a cement barrier, skirting a railing above a drainage culvert, and coming to rest facing opposite his original direction of travel — barely missing a plunge over a 200-foot precipice by about twelve inches.

The roadway seen in these pictures is Highway 59 (i.e., State Route 59) near Hurricane City, Utah:

The Hurricane City Police department confirmed that these images "are consistent with a single vehicle traffic accident that occurred on State Route 59 in Hurricane City" on 30 December 2006, and that "Hurricane City Police and Hurricane City Fire Rescue responded to the scene." The driver told police he was traveling at 55 mph when he left the road, but the police report of the incident notes that the truck left a 92-foot-long skid mark, suggesting a much higher speed (perhaps 75 to 80 mph).
