(SUV On CSU Lot Flips)

FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- A driver doing "doughnuts" in a parking lot near the Colorado State University campus was killed Wednesday night when his vehicle flipped and crashed.

The incident occurred at about 8 p.m. in the parking lot of CSU's Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory.

A witness told the Fort Collins Coloradan that the driver pulled into the parking lot and then gunned the accelerator.

The driver was thrown from behind the wheel to the passenger side and then out the window, witnesses said. The vehicle flipped and partially rolled over the victim, a CSU spokesman said.

Three other people in the Ford Explorer were not hurt.

All of the occupants were in their late teens or early 20s. The victim has not been identified. Police are investigating whether drugs or alcohol played a role.

"CSU's Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory. "

Kind of ironic, I guess he should have listened closer when the they talked about traction, center of gravity and horsepower relationship on dry pavement class they had last week.....

Sounds like the kids was skipping class or he might have known how the energy conversion of his donuts would have upon his body once it left the vehicle.

An explorer is totally the wrong kind of car to do donuts in. What an idiot.

My ‘67 impala, now that was the donut machine. Best i ever did was 27 in a row, and I needed new tires very shortly after that. Ah, to be young and stupid again would be fun!

OK, so the driver flies out the passenger side window - over the top of his passenger, who was wearing a seat belt, and no one else was hurt - probably all wearing seat belts.

I’m not for “mandatory” anything - but this is a good advertisement for making a good choice voluntarily.

Reading your post I was sure you were a 35 year old who went to high school with my husband. :-) They used to go out in a Judge and do donuts in the mall parking lot.

Probably one of the few rear wheel drive vehicles available these days. Or maybe the 4 wheel drive was engaged, explaining why the stunt didn't work so well. Don't donuts usually require a little snow or ice anyway, unless your dealing with a muscle car?

I had a 76 Plymouth Fury Salon 4 door, like the old cop cars in the movies, but mine had a 3 on the tree. It was one of the last bigger cars I knew of that still had a clutch. I had to replace my tires so often the guys down at the local used tire shop started stockpiling them for me...

“Police are investigating whether drugs or alcohol played a role.”

I blame it on the driver for poor judgement and/or stupidity. Blaming it on drugs or alcohol only sets us up to lose more freedoms. Just the same as blaming homicides,etc on guns instead of the person responsible.

I owned a 66 with the 396/425 motor. It would do donuts real well until it met up with Mr. Tree.

"....Yeah, and to think everyone knows you always do the donuts with a right hand turn, this idiot uses and Explorer and turned left, onto the drive tire...."

Is there really a signifigance to that? This is the first I've ever heard of it.

It would explain why I, a left-hander, can't perform a decent doughnut.

” It would do donuts real well until it met up with Mr. Tree.”

Then it got a split personality — which led to a double post.

And the school who owned the parking lot, the makers of the material the lot was paved with and the cement manufacturer that produced the cement for the curbs, etc. Have I left anyone out?
