That unfortunate. Lucky they had a mini van and not a smart car I guess. People need to get off the roadway, pull totally off the road, put hazards on, and light up flares and get into a lighted areas. Some people just stop in the roadway in unsafe areas - story doesn't cover the details of the event.
