    I think so. But, I also think it could've happened on the road that takes you past the MK.

    What in the world was the driver of the Hyundai doing? I'm almost positive that road has a pretty low speed limit and its not like there are all kinds of crazy turns and loops. Something sounds fishy.

    Maybe something happened with her brakes or her steering or something.
