Looks like another victim of the "gotta get off at Pali" ramp. I think it's up to 5 that I've seen so far.

Had to be speeding on a wet road on a curve. That's coming out of the short tunnel on Punchbowl St. by Jiffy Lube. Cars have to merge from 2 lanes to 1 before the tunnel. A lot of times the car in the right lane wants to rush and get in to the left lane.

But the 2 cars will have collided before they get out of that tunnel. The exit is too narrow. So you'd have two cars lying there. Plus it wouldn't cause a car to flip.

It's only 1 lane in the tunnel. He most likely went up the embankment.

'when the sports utility vehicle he was driving flipped...' You mean when he flipped the sports utility he was driving, probably due to his speeding and careless driving.

when it rains people need to slow down put your lights on and pay attention and get off the cell phones. It's amazing how a person flips a car on a ramp. Speeding,rain or not paying attention.

I surmise someone trying to merge from Punchbowl St. force their way in and the SUV swerved up the embankment to avoid the merging vehicle. It seems sometimes those exiting from H-1 to the Pali Highway don't want to let someone merge in.

It was single car accident. The West bound Pali off from the H1 freeway is short and at a somewhat sharp angle. IF you drive the speed limit on this offramp you will have no problem. HOWEVER if you speed getting offmthe off ramp you will have to make a quick steering correction and combined with a wet road, SUV with high center of gravity and worn tires, under acceleration the vehicle can fishtail and if the driver cannot settle the car down will lose control and like someone suggested, drive up the embankment and roll back, ending upside side. Don't ask me how I know this, however when it happened to me I was able to settle the fish tailing by not abruptl

....not abruptly releasing the accelerator and quickly steering the wheel in the direction the tail of the vehicle was swinging. That was not fun.
