    There seems to be a lot of debris spilled. Perhaps the investigation can apply this as a possibility. High speed low air pressure, over weighed interior and perhaps no safety belts. We can't expect others to asses responsible behavior. We could only imagine their home. We send our best always. God bless our departments finest !! !!!!!

    Possibly going too fast… without seat belts, or a drivers license, or insurance, while drinking, and high, and texting, and changing the radio station, in a stolen car, on parole, fleeing from another crime, with expired plates and sticker, while executing a high speed turn, without a turn signal! Will show up to court in droopy pants and wearing a baseball cap sideways.
