The cop that investigated the accident said that we were lucky to be alive, and that the car had flipped between a few trees that would have stopped it in mid-air similar to the way you would carry a mattress and box springs up a flight of stairs with a turn...
I was later told that an IU player had been paralyzed on the same stretch of road... Now I know who it was. Brings back some crazy memories... I remember watching (I was purely a passenger at that point) the sky, ground, sky, ground through the windshield before we finally landed on the wheels (breaking both axles)...
I only sprained my ankle even though we flipped bumper over bumper 2 times... Makes me feel even more lucky now.
Are these the curves that wind around the Flatrock Creek, just west of Hartsville? If so, you may be pleased to know INDOT re-routed the road and has eliminated them. Thankfully. And thanks for the info about Turner; I didn't know that's where his accident was.
