This accident was actually one my sister and her best friend were involved in August 2, 2006. They were driving in their lane, my sister was sleeping in the passenger seat, and her friend amanda was driving. It was an extremely hot day and Amanda got a headache, so she took off her seatbelt... as she kept driving they think she had a heat stroke... and passed out... at that time, my sister woke up, looked up, and saw they were going into the other lane and screamed "amanda"... when amanda quickly awoke, it was too late... they side swiped a dump truck, then swerved back onto their side of the road, where they flipped their car several times, rolling over a cliff and into a field...
Amanda was ejected from the car, landing about 7 feet away from it. My sister, brittney was trapped in the car... while passerby's attempted to get my sister out of the car, it caught on fire... and my sister was pulled through the passenger window.... someone put out the flames with a fire extinguisher....
Both were sent to the hospital, my sister by ambulance, and Amanda was life flighted. Amanda won't be out of the hospital until at least October, and then she'll be in a rehabilitation center to learn to use her arm and leg (both of which they thought they'd have to amputate).
two pictures are from the actual accident scene.
Again the accident happened on August 2, 2006... in lehighton, Pennsylvania... on Rt 209...
hope this helps...
