INCOMING! On the...highway? WTF?

Dash-cam footage from Mukilteo (north of Seattle) today.

Like it wasn't bad enough that motorcyclists have to worry about being hit by other vehicles and constantly stay vigilant by keeping our head on a swivel...now we have to worry about **THIS**!

Traffic was backed up a long ways. Hadn't seen the video of it, that was a lot more dramatic than I originally thought when I heard it. I was expecting 'landed on the road with stuck gear' or something.

Meh, just keeping things interesting!
Beats the heck out of an SUV rear ending a Prius, and now I have to sit here for an hour wondering who's the dumbass that caused this..
Speaking of which, saw an SUV laying on it's side on NB 405 this evening, WTF?
Now, put a crashed airplane there, and I'm like, hell yeah! That's worth the delay!
If you're gonna stall traffic, go big!

I saw that SUV on it's side too Thursday evening on 405, I was headed south. Looked like a Jeep Cherokee XJ (used to own one).

Yeah, me too. On the curves right? Too bad everyone has to come to a complete stop in the Southbound lane. I really don't get it, because so many folks complain about looky-loos, you would think that cagers would just move on.

Pay the price sitting in line, might as well see the show when you get there.
