On my drive up the Kitt Peak road, I came across this scene. As I pulled to a halt near the minivan that lay on its side, I was afraid of what I might find inside. Was I the first on scene? I called out to any occupants as I approached the vehicle and then looked down into the vehicle from the passenger side window that was broken out. The vehicle was empty. I looked around from the back to be sure and then gave a sigh of relief. Hopefully the driver was ok and from the appearances of the cockpit area, with airbags deployed and the condition of the seats, it looks like the driver was well protected. This image was taken at 18mm focal length with an exposure of 1/60 seconds at f/3.5, ISO 800 with the on camera flash.
