Now I'm curious. Double yellow line? It looks like a reverse PIT maneuver, SUV turns into car with a lower center of gravity and spins... on the wrong axis.

From Imgur:
Quote:
Two men got into an argument during rush hour traffic on State Road 78 in Oceanside, California. Thirty-three-year-old Kevin McCall of Vista got out of his convertible to yell at the Escape driver, spat at him, and got back into his car. Andrew Carson Branch of Escondido, 23, apparently attempted to pass the BMW, but his tire climbed the car instead, quickly flipping. He was arrested for felony assault with a deadly weapon. McCall faced misdemeanor charges.

That double-yellow was the carpool lane. One of the critics claimed that this was originally posted six months ago and they showed the entire flip, but that was the entire flip, and I was surprised that it flipped onto its side.

You cannot tell what it is, but you can see the concrete divider on the left. Had the Ford flipped further it would have hit the divider or continued over it.

I am pretty sure that I would have heard of an Escape flipping over a concrete barrier into oncoming traffic in less than six months.

Right, maybe had the wheels been that far apart it wouldn't have flipped.

ProDigit, where was the typo?
