It didn't turn into "Upward" momentum, the correct physics explanation is that my momentum created a trajectory that created a parabolic path that was exceeded by the downward slope of the road surface causing the vehicle to appear to fly off the road when it was in fact the road that left my vehicle....or something like that (In the full size version of the below picture, if you look REALLY close, you can see that the left rear is also off the ground at this point.)
