    Re: LSD rollover: I wondered about the fact that the car was upside down on the ice. Looking today as I drove by the gaping hole in the guard rail, where the car had sheared the rail off of three or four support posts and bent it back to the southwest I saw that the driver also sheared off a good chunk of bark on a large older tree. That likely pushed the car into a spin that resulted in the upside down landing.
