Turn the wheel too far for the speed you're going?

Pretty hard to manage that at 25

In the wrong direction it appears.

It is facing the wrong way for traffic. Perhaps someone decided to take a right off of Purchase onto Congress panicked.

I used to think that too, but two quick examples:

You should google slow speed rollover. You can do that even when stationary.

Low speed roll over seems to be the bane of SUVs generally, and compact ones now more than larger ones. They are tall and somewhat top heavy with a narrow wheelbase.

Subaru puts the entire drive train is very low in the vehicle (boxer engines are flat at the bottom on of the car). Putting all that weight at the down low creates a weeble-mobile and reduces the chances of this.

Another thing to note that it helps to be on a phone in times like this. This way your arm is already up to hold the ceiling.
