They went into a curve at a speed the officers determined to be 85 to 90 MPH, and had almost no time to react to the semi that had just took a right turn onto a side road. They were unable to take the curve, lost control and hit about the middle of the trailer. The impact not only ripped off the top of the car, it decapitated both of them.
