Local (Colorado Springs) Class-A Rollover Crash

This morning, the southbound lanes of I-25 were closed due to a rollover crash of a Class-A that was towing a Jeep. Thankfully, everyone was okay but the RV doesn't look too well....:-(

I've been watching the updates and tonight the local news said the RV was being driven by an elderly couple but I haven't heard if they know the actual cause. (Weather was good and roads were dry but, locally, people tend to drive like maniacs on I-25.)

I'll post some pics I saw on facebook and a link to a video of the scene.

Looks like the RV got cut off by the small car on the bottom picture, slid into the K-rail and flipped on its side.

Yes, that's the Jeep they were towing. (I'd never tow such a heavy thing with a Class-A no matter what my owners manual says...simple physics says all that weight is NOT easy to stop quickly....I've even seen Class-A's towing huge trailers that had a car AND a boat on them! That's nuts!)
