Look closely at this first photo…
(Don’t go to photo# 2 until you look at #1 very closely..)
This is an interesting, even breathtaking couple of photos. Be sure to read the 1st caption below picture before going to the 2nd photo. Look closely at the first photo take your time then scroll down very slowly.
Look at the picture 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.
Just outside Flagstaff , AZ , on U.S. . Hwy 100.
Now look at the second picture below…SCROLL DOWN TO BOTTOM OF PHOTO..
If God isn’t done with you, Then God isn’t done with you !!
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 oftravel — 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).
Here is another reporting…
On December 30, an Arizona driver, whose name is redacted from police records because of Utah law, was driving east along State Route 59, a canyon road just outside Hurricane, a city of 12,000 located 135 miles northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada.
The driver told police the 1991 GMC pickup was traveling 55 mph through the Mojave Desert town when it left the two-lane roadway. The accident report states the truck left a 92-foot-long skid mark suggesting it was more likely traveling about 83 mph.
After sliding off the road and onto the right shoulder, the driver “overcorrected back left and crossed the oncoming lane of traffic before hitting a cement barricade with the right front of the vehicle,” the report states.
Investigators estimated that the truck was traveling about 75 mph when it crashed through a concrete barricade separating the road from a roughly 200-foot precipice running alongside State Route 59.
What happened next has been described on Internet messages boards as “impossible,” “crazy” and “insane.” One Web site ran the photos under the headline, “I bet this guy will be in church Sunday!”
So stunning are the photos on the myth-buster sites that many people posting comments allege the pictures have been altered with Adobe Photoshop.
Not so, say the local police.
After crashing through the barricade, the truck slammed into a concrete drainage culvert on the canyon side of the guardrail. The force of the impact propelled the pickup truck into the air, spinning it 180 degrees counter-clockwise along a guardrail.
“When it hit, it flipped end over end and cleared the culvert,” Hurricane Police Chief Lynn Excell said, explaining how the truck sailed over the watercourse, a distance of about 20 feet. “How that happened I don’t know.”
Perhaps even more astonishing than the flip is that the truck was able to stay on the slender right-of-way separating the road from the cliff, an expanse about 25-feet wide.
“It was amazing,” said Hurricane police spokeswoman Mindy Hatfield.
The truck — its front end smashed — landed right-side up, facing the opposite direction it was traveling. No one was critically injured, Excell said, but the driver landed mere inches from the cliff’s edge — and certain death.
“Vehicle 1 came to rest facing west approximately one foot from the edge of the cliff,” states the police report.
Excell has seen the photos that have appeared on various legends sites. The photos are authentic, he said, and accusations that they’ve been altered are off base.
“Weird things happen,” he said, but “that is absolutely a lock-stock-and-barrel factual thing.”
