MANCHESTER, NH – Two people escaped serious injury in a violent single-car crash Saturday.

A Lexus sedan was traveling South on I-293 at about 5:30 p.m. when it lost control, striking the Jersey barrier and exiting the right side of the roadway before becoming airborne. According to motorists who witnessed the accident, the Lexus went end over end and landed vertically against the wooden sound barrier.

Two males in the vehicle were found outside of the vehicle when first responders arrived. It was not immediately known if they were thrown from the vehicle or climbed out, said District Fire Chief Hank Martineau.

        I’m surprised that you haven’t commented on Reddit. Or were you banned from there too?

    Those guys were lucky. Here’s hoping for a full recovery. Since there are very few facts given in the story, it is useless to try to speculate on the cause of the accident. I’m sure the police will figure it out one they talk to the victims. The trouble is, it takes so long to find the cause, it won’t be published because the only ones that will care at that point will be the victims, their families and friends and the insurance companies involved.
