I went back by the scene of the accident today...no skid marks, a long line of tracks going through the weeds before losing control and rolling a couple of times into a ditch.
When I noticed there were no skid marks, first thing that came to mind was "ain't that odd"...the next thing was "distracted driving or excessive speed, maybe both" Thing was angle of the marks in the weeds leading to the final resting spot tells me that it was possible distracted driving with possible excessive speed.
Remembering how they ended up, I have been trying to figure out how they got that way because it is hard to explain but they were resting on the drivers door, roof facing the road, car rolled twice, this happened in a wooded area, one tree punctured the engine compartment and one tree punctured the trunk compartment as well as nothing left of the undercarriage because of all these trees...near as I can guess is that it was the trees forcing this car back up on its side into the hill side of the ditch. This may sound pretty cut and dry, but they were not exactly on their side as they were more at an angle, with the passenger side of the roof tilted more towards the road.
I also know that when a vehicle rolls, typically when going into a ditch it goes passenger side first and then rolls. Not watching it happen, I wonder what happened because all the debris was behind the car or below the undercarriage...nothing where the volunteers or emergency workers were going to get hurt by anything except by some glass.
Fortunately, no fatalities. All our students sign an agreement stating they will not use any electronic devices in their vehicles once they leave school grounds and that vehicle is in operation and that includes anything that belongs to the school district and that includes air books, ipads, tablets, netbooks, or laptops to name a few.
