Midweek carnage

As I type this, CHP have closed both lanes of northbound Highway 17 in Santa Cruz County, California. Somebody drove his vehicle off of the side of the highway and down the side of the mountain. Two women were ejected from the vehicle, and the car landed on top of one of the ejected passengers. Responding CHP requested a tow vehicle with 200 feet of cable to recover the vehicle.
