Location:Skyline Boulevard Area Northern California.
Speed: Appx. 80 mph
What Happend: Kid in front of me(just got his license, six months rule still applied, and he had a friend in the car. Car was not his) hit some gravel on the side of the road, drifted, overcorrected and hit a telephone pole at what was prolly about 60-75mph. THe car then did a full 360 turn, breaking the rear drivers side axel/tire when he finally hit an enbankment.
Damage: Front End=Owned. At the initiall impact spot there was oil spalter and coolant. His engine block seperated from the head, engine was broken open basically. Everything behind engine was fine.
Injury: none. Both the driver and passenger were fine, just a little shooken up.
Luckly i wasnt too close to the kid..other wise it could have gotten uglier
Accident 2: 2003/4(not sure) Honda S2000.
Location: just off of Higway 1 near half moon bay on a back road.
Speed:Unknown. I wasnt there to see the actual wreck happen.
What happend: We were on this back road, and peoples cars were bottoming out, so 95% of the pack stopped to just check out the damage bottoming out caused. 3 cars continued on the road. The S2000 in the back of this pack lost control and got into a 4 wheel drift in a apprx. 25mph turn. He then(he was about 50 or so..midlife crisis im guessing) flew off of that cliff into the brush, flipping over once.
Injury Report: He was ok
We all get the urge...Saturday early morning...nothing to do till noon...
