    Wow! sounds like a lot more went on after he came to a full stop. You can still hear skidding and impacts when he's sitting there. I know you can't see what traffic was like behind, but the road didn't seem too crowded. It just seems like more people weren't paying attention hearing that.

    What a surprise that must have been for the SUV driver !! One minute your driving down the highway and the next you are on your roof spinning like a top. Hope everyone made it out safe and sound.

    Wow. Looks like those new GoPro mounts in the new Tacoma trucks come in handy! Hopefully everyone came out reasonably ok. And hopefully the Tacoma driver was able to provide video evidence in the case.

    Speed + idiot for sure, but I still wonder how & why someone loses control in such a manner. Texting, dropped coffee or brain lockup? Maybe all three. Hope everyone was OK & hope the dolt in the MINI becomes a pedestrian.

    So easy to over-correct with that responsive steering. I'd say inattention combined with a lack of knowing the limits of the car.
