    Turns out that was on US-129 through Deal's Gap. Otherwise known as "Tail of the Dragon", with 318 turns in only 11 miles.

    More pics, including one of the driver's car being towed away.

    Yesterday, on our way back from a friends funeral, Diane and I saw a car upside down in a ditch on a fairly innocuous left hand bend. Although it was wet visibility was excellent and the traffic was minimal. She was wondering how such accidents can happen on an open road in broad daylight. Query; Are they really accidents or are they so often just the result of one, or more, people not really in command of their situation. Today, thanks to you Chip, I was able to show her a video of just how such incidents occur.

    Didn't notice the man-boobs until you mentioned it, Eric.
    Thanks.
    Now that's all I'm going to be thinking of for the rest of the day.


    I also just noticed that the car ended up in reverse after landing on the rock pile. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but he probably has a broken transmission, too. Not cheap for the Lincoln LS.

    I would bet the guy was on his cell phone, tuning the radio, shaving, or reading a map.
