Default Witnessed to an accident

I was driving along #3 rd and stopped at a red light while a STi turned left on yellow right. STi barely made it thru the yellow light at approximate speed of 50km/hr. Lost controlled and crashed onto the curb with the front axle gone as the result.

I pulled over and asked if need any help or anyone ok.... driver and passenger said they are ok and then I just drove away.

Driver said he was using summer tire on a rainy day so let that be a lesson to anyone don't use summer tire during winter time at all.

Sad. AWD also can give a sense of false security about traction.
Hmm, I guess I will put off the summer tires until the rain runs out. I still haven't had a dry day.

i think it depends on which type of summer tires as well,
for example i know eagle F1 has pretty good wet traction while my kumho MX is really scary in wet. but anything, and i mean ANYTHING, is better than RE-92 in rain.

i could do 4 wheel burn out in rain with RE-92 on a 3500-4000rpm launch, and if i'm on a slope i'll slide down which ever way the slope is pointing at...that's how bad it is.
