SUV flips on wet road


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- It looks like heavy rain and speed led a driver to flip her vehicle over on an exit ramp this morning in Wilmington.

Highway Patrol says the driver was taking a sharp curve on the Castle Hayne exit off of MLK Parkway when she hit the median. That caused her SUV to flip over into the other lane. A trooper says the driver was traveling too fast for the wet conditions.

The driver was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.

Yet another idiot who thinks SUV means

that they can drive like idiots (as they see on commericals) and never lose traction no matter what. What they fail to know is those vehicles all have brand new tires on them and in controlled conditions. Theres a reason why they say "Professional Driver on close course DO NOT ATTEMPT"

I know this person very well

I know this person very well and they are def not the type to drive like a fool. We all have poor judgement at times when driving..thats why they call them "Accidents"

Madame Obvious Here...

Slow down! It's not just your life you're jeopardizing!
