We are currently in SC. The other night we were driving home on a 45mph road that serves many of the new subdivisions. It was dark, but all of a sudden, I saw a pickup truck upside down flying across road immediately ahead of us. After it hit it flipped back onto wheels.

I pulled off and along with some other guys that appeared went over to check for injuries. One guy was lying on road not looking good. Driver had got out and was trying to phone 911. So were others. I checked inside and there were still two inside cab. In shock I think, because when I went to driver side, they crawled out. Not much English so hard to communicate. Eventually emergency vehicles and police arrived and we left.

What I couldn't figure out, was how that truck got so high in air at 40-50mph.

Scary though. A few sec later it would have hit us
