This type of incident, contrary to the Camaro that ended up in Lake Erie, is a result of driver error due to a lack of attention or experience. We’ve all seen drivers leave an interstate or highway, headed for an off-ramp, carrying far too much speed and lining up poorly with the curve ahead. Most drivers stick to the inside or outside of the bend, leaving them will little room to make corrections if there’s a loss of reactions. At least in this case, as reported by kjzz.com, there was only minor property damage involved.

Even with SH-AWD (Super-Handling), this Acura MDX likely understeered somewhat as attempts to correct its trajectory proved ineffective against the speed and momentum it was carrying.
