Just drive by. It was pouring. Glad no one was severely injured. The Subaru looked really banged up.

I have driven that stretch HUNDREDS of times in all weather. Blaming the road is ridiculous. Speeding, inattentive driver is the issue here. And in most accidents on today’s RHBB.
Slow down, pay attention. There is a loved one waiting for you

I also have driven that road, and it is just as you describe. Generally, the driver’s fault from what I have witnessed. People pay attention to your driving and please slow down before you kill yourself or some innocent person or family.

I’ve driven between Bell Springs Rd and Willits in several major storms this season. The stretch between Shimmins Ridge and Sherwood Rd has an unusual amount of standing water pooled up and now the right lanes have huge unrepaired pot holes throughout that section.
I drove it yesterday and saw the car that flipped into Long Valley Creek. It was sketchy out there.
I only saw a couple assholes driving way too fast
