    photo makes it look like a nasty one. Kinda looks like the idiot with the windshield sticker may have drifted over the center divider. Usually idiots will put on a windshield sticker when they think they’re driving some kind of race car. Usually signifies either a young teenage idiot or someone older with very low IQ.

      Or somebody who very reasonably wanted a few inches of darker tint at the top of the windshield.

  • Mr. W June 11, 2018 at 6:40 pm

    Or a mexican.

      I’m suprised the STG News moderator allowd this particular comment through. 🙁

        Freedom of speech…….

      often times it’s little white punk “bro dudes”. sometimes hispanics, but could be any race, really.

  • fightillogic June 11, 2018 at 6:45 pm

    Wow, you guys can tell someone’s age, IQ, and nationality from a picture of two wrecked cars! I’m embarrassed for both of you whoever you are.

      You can trust these two internet geniuses. Mr. W and comments also cracked the Pizzagate case and outed several hundred M13 spies who were ritually abusing kids in the basement of a Wash DC pizza parlor. Well done boys.

      • dogmatic June 11, 2018 at 7:35 pm

        Comments and mr W are hilarious reminds me of the Nancy Grace, MSNBC, CNN.

        • Bender June 11, 2018 at 8:14 pm

          You spelled Infowars and Fox News incorrectly. Please up your game.

      and yet the most recent article on this crash basically says I was spot on. Figure it out…

  • SteveSGU June 11, 2018 at 6:51 pm

    This kind of report is pretty useless if you don’t give a time.

  • Tera June 11, 2018 at 7:38 pm

    Maybe it was someone who thought they could drink and drive and get away with it? Oh wait, it was!!! So yeah.. this has a little to do with someone IQ.

    • comments June 11, 2018 at 8:53 pm

      Drunk driving is no excuse for someone’s low IQ

  • Kilroywashere June 11, 2018 at 8:14 pm

    Mexican, Morman, middle aged White Guy, Millineal, Asian, Quaker, Athirst, OR MAYBE A HUMAN BEING OPERATING A VEHICLE WHILE DISTRACTED ON A CELL PHONE, as I do remember spending 20 minutes Counting 100 vehicle sample once,upon a time, on that exact highway at 5pm give or take and at least 4 of 10 Vehicles had drivers using cellphones illegally. The stats could be even higher. How else do you go over the center line unless you’re eating your Mcdonalds meal and your coke spills at the same time. I think it is beneath the posters here to make outright racist comments, but I ain’t you. Not would I want to be. Let’s be a little bit smarter than that and give dignity to all Americans.

      The guy saying this was a mexican was a bit out of bounds, and I wouldn’t immediately pin it on any 1 group. This was likely some “bro dude” punk who was driving like hell or distracted by a phone or both. It’s messed up and totally unfair that he/she seriously injured someone like this. It could’ve been a female on a phone if it wasn’t a “bro dude”, but windshield sticker idiots are usually male.

      • SilentThunder June 12, 2018 at 1:53 pm

        What the hell is a “bro dude”? Are you making sub-categories of minorities?

  • mesaman June 11, 2018 at 8:56 pm

    It would do well for commenters to stick to what is evident in the photos or pictures and leave the prognosticating to the tarot readers and crystal ball gazers. But then, why should I judge them, I can always skip the comments and go on.

    • comments June 11, 2018 at 9:15 pm

      yes m&m, you can skip the comments and life will move on 😉

  • Mr. W June 12, 2018 at 12:28 am

    I apologize after further pictures were posted I noticed it was a “fear this” sticker. That wasn’t a Mexican it was actually a white Male with a mullet who lives in a single wide.

    I know for a fact that it was an alien from outer space who was distracted while trying to set his tazer to stun. When he finally looked up from his distracted state, he realized he was in Southern Utah so he did what all Southern Utah residents do. He made an immediate left turn if front of oncoming traffic. Case solved.
