Driven that road many times, that is a pretty treacherous stretch, the bridges are narrow, the road is curvy, and people haul butt. It's particularly bad going southbound, because it's downhill, and people get going a lot faster.
Great job by the rescue personnel and the Seabees. Sounds like the family will recover.
