On the Skids in Carbon Canyon #19999

CORRECTION, 9:45 a.m.:  Thanks to a local resident who commented on a Facebook post about this accident and stated that this accident was early on Sunday before 6 a.m.   The resident saud a car was wedged between the power pole at the left of the photo and the fence to the right.

These incidents tend to come in bunches with lulls in between.  This one appears to have happened last night.

The location is eastbound on Carbon Canyon Road on the S-curve between Azurite Drive and Old Carbon Canyon Road.

It's another common place for cars to depart the roadway on a steep curved downhill.

The skid marks began a ways out before the vehicle rode up the embankment.

Note that a utility box was crushed and deposited atop the embankment.
