    That...is a really interesting way to crash. I can't figure out how they managed it. Flying off a corner on the inside takes some special skills, especially when it looks like they started in the outside lane.

    Driving on the West Coast is getting scary with the massive tourist numbers.

    A long time to be on your own (so to speak). Fire trucks from Lake Hawea took 59min and Wanaka 1hr 11min to get there and choppers from Greymouth, Queenstown and Dunners.
    Thats where 1st Aid skills come into it. Not sure how long before ambos were there

    Yeah, but it looks like they hit the bank with the front end first, and got it to spin around and plant the back end in.

    Back end lets go and points the front into the inside of the corner and unable to correct and go off the inside of the corner, In this one I'm guessing the nose hit first while still sliding causing them to spin.

    Very common to crash off of the inside of corners, especially in the wet.

    I have been an unfortunate passenger in exactly that situation, arse goes out front clips rock wall slid up the road sideways/backwards and into the rock wall backwards at around 120kph after washing off an estimated 40kph by sideways.

    The only person in the back seat my body weight put a very visible big bow in the backrest of the back seat so much so I dont know how it stayed upright sort of. The front seat passenger ended up almost in the back seat with me as the front two seat mounts ripped out of the floor and the seat layed back.
    Driver got off ok the fuckwit,I had months of rehab.

    Sounds like it's time to give up on the day. No more activities other than repetitive movements of beer glass to mouth
