This is what happens when you miss a turn on a dead-end highway intersection going 60MPH …
Car vs. Snow

It was day 6 of us going to different orphanages and villages with a Christmas program. Several days prior to this we had 2 services per day. We were literally exhausted. That morning I got up at 5:30 so we could leave by 6:30 and drive 150 miles one way.
I got distracted and missed a T intersection – realizing that I could not make a 90° turn at this speed, I made the decision not to risk a rollover, but to plow into a 5 foot high snow bank. Fortunately there was no traffic at the intersection otherwise there would have been fatalities. We traveled about 10 yards and got stuck in deep snow.
