    DONíT SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN JUST YET

    Read the caption on the first photo, then look at the second photo.

    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...

    WOW!!!!!! I hope that they've both learned their lessons and drive a little more carefully next time. I would also get on the other side of the truck.

    If that were my kids I'd march them straight to the nearest Church and tell them don't even think of getting off of your knees unless they are bleeding.

    Always check.
    This story is true, mostly, but the details are incorrect. Read about the actual event here http://www.snopes.com/photos/accident/culvert.asp#photo

    To me, the title of the post still applies!!!

    This story is true.

    When I get these emails, I always 'snopes.com' them. Here is snopes answer to these pictures. Not Arizona, but Utah.
