The only way that you could drive through the road barrier on that road is if you were either exceeding the speed limit considerably or an idiot.

Paul, you are the idiot. You have no clue whatsoever what happened. The brakes could have failed, a deer could have run out, the driver could have had a medical event. Unless you know the facts, I suggest you keep your mouth shut.
