Do we have a reason for the accident??? Cars (SUV’s) just don’t flip over when driving the speed limit down South Oyster Bay Road. Was it excessive speed, texting, talking on the phone, DWI, DUI??? Inquiring minds would like to know.

From one of the pictures it looks like she hit the tree next to her. My bet would be texting or talking on the phone. Could be trying to avoid something like a pedestrian or squirrel too.
