I passed a single roll over wreck on the 40 3 miles west of Ludlow. Chopper on the ground in the west bound lanes, and a twisted ball of metal that was virtually unidentifiable in the gully called a center divider. I mean this thing was about 8 ft in diameter, all twisted up in a ball. I can't see how anyone could have survived in that car? truck? SUV?......I couldn't even tell what color it was because so much of the outside was actually insides.........Ray

Nissan?

The CHP info says Nissan SUV, man you sure couldn't tell it. A twisted ball of metal was all I could see going by east bound and looking back. The CHP said "traffic was light" ?? The west bound was backed up almost to Ludlow while the chopper was on the ground.......I hope they all made it.............Ray

That was an ugly scene. As we kept rolling west on the 40 we saw CHP and an ambulance headed eastbound. But, they were a long way away from the accident. That is a long time to wait for help. Is that the closest ambulance? Barstow?

We rolled by when there was just a single CHP on scene. Looked pretty bad. I hope everyone involved is OK.

Saw this too. Lady on a stretcher, on her side. No blood, but they were rolling her to her back to install a neck brace. Only saw one person and no yellow sheets. Amazing she looking OK but the SUV was a mess. She rolled the thing down in the ditch about 30 feet below the road.

We passed her at about 6:45? It looked like a very recent accident. One CHP and one fire truck (F series). Saw a bunch of stuff rolling her way for another 30 minutes. Man, if you are hurt it is a LONG wait for someone to help, let alone get you moving to a hospital.... ughhh
