Must have been traveling at a high rate of speed to jump the guardrail and exit the roadway.

And guess that maybe the monsoon we had most of the day yesterday had something to do with it.

It rained/slurried all day and then the temps dropped after dark.

The local unofficial weather station shows it dipped below freezing in that area around that time.
