    People need to drive the speed limit on this road. It’s insane! 60 MPH is the minimum speed on this 45 MPH road.

    Somebody was not paying attention. Distracted driver?

    Good advert for not buying a Ram pickup. Seems A, B, and C pillars are pretty flimsy.

      True, but that’s close to 8000 pounds of truck crushing down on the roof. As a 2500HD owner I’m surprised that car was able to flip it over, I’m curious of the speeds involved to make this happen.

        Easy. Physics. The truck is top heavy and the Cruiser is low. The Cruiser went under the truck to cause it to flip. Speed had nothing to do with it. The perfect speed to get a car on two wheels is 25 mph

      The ram in the previous rollover seemed to be the victor.

    Wow!! The PT Cruiser gave more damage then received. Just goes to show. Low is the way to go.

    The people in the PT Cruiser ran a red light and t-boned the truck that was waiting to turn.

    PT Cruiser ran a red light. The truck was starting to make a turn when they were t-boned.

    Thank you. Where did you get the info from about what caused the accident?

    I live in town Creek and have to cross this intersection everyday. One must wait before putting out on a green light and still use extra caution as cars on 235 run threw this red light everyday without stopping. I had a car almost take me out one day as the center south bound lane was open. As I can threw the intersection on a green light. A car came down the open center lane and drove right threw the middle of 2 rows of stopped traffic and right threw the red light. Almost T-Boning me. Lucky I was paying extra attention that day and saw what was coming and was able to avoid being hit! Very Dangerous intersection!
