Well we were all driving home from jetfest on the turnpike,and we were at the point to where the highway had a slight turn. As we slightly turned all the traffic came to a sudden stop. The focus in front of me quickly braked and warned all of us on the walkie talkies.
Laz driving my car braked but started to pull over to the shoulder the road to try and give Manda more room to stop. When she came around the turn she slammed on her brakes but wasnt stopping fast enough so she jerked her wheel to go into the next lane to avoid hitting me. When she did she spun out and went flying onto the median. Luckliy the dirt was mud and it slowed her down quite a bit or she would of went on the other side of the road. Everyone was fine and it was very little damage to Manda's car.

Manda- u can add to this if u like

Wow. Sounds like some good evassive driving Amanda. Just glad that median was muddy and not hard packed dirt or you may have ended up in oncoming traffic.

Glad you're alright now!

Sorry to hear about your focus. The good thing is that you are ok. I am glad that you didn't flip the focus because that is what happened to me. Put the SVTF on its top today Regardless of what you were doing, it is good that nothing else happened. It is scary when you get into a spin and realize there isn't much you can do. Again glad to hear your ok
