    from looking at these pictures the only way i see this occuring would be consistant with the silver car probably speeding down the road.. finally realizing that traffic has stopped.. attempting to jam breaks causing the car to do an “ENDO” flipping over and the red car which would have been in front of the silver car. stopping the silver car from landing upside down on the ground…. then again.. i could be wrong..

    WOAH

  13. RawOnion says:

    Judging by the picture and the angle and damage to the silver car, that car was traveling east approaching the red Rover, it swerved left and hit the palm tree causing it to roll over, over the sidewalk. The rear of the car then came down on the Rover..and likely gently. I wasn’t there so I’m just making a visual assumption.

    And it doesn’t take much speed to roll a car if you hit one front wheel against an immoveable object (note the passenger side wheel is covered in natural debris (dirt/tree bark)) and is also out of alignment indicating it made contact with something.

    EVERY day in every way we have vehicle incidents.

    todays incidents was due to a Flying Car in crash mode.

    I didn’t know they were filming fast and the stupid here in Bermuda?

  16. Thunder Man says:

    There is a dent in the front of the red car. I think the silver car came through the lights and for some reason veered into the red car. Cars do not need that much help to make them airborne. The silver car was probably only doing 35 K and it slid right up and over the red car. I have personally seen cars flip while going around a bend in a road and just hitting the sidewalk. I also worked in the Fire Service and attended many accidents so I do have some experience accident reconstruction

  17. Swimming onion says:

    Very fortunate no serious injuries & perhaps, the air bags in the flipped car prevented that.

  18. Sigh Of Relief says:

    it is so simple there brains were in the foot at the time fast and stupid was filming lmao hsbc

  19. Sigh Of Relief says:

    you are responsible for your own stupidity
    and that all folks

  20. Johnboy says:

    Most people don’t realise that the Rovers have forcefields optional from the factory. Unfortunately they couldn’t make the engines as reliable…..

  21. Babylon says:

    This happened travelling at 20 mph?

  22. cousin says:

    Hope those involved were not hurt too bad and the fright of th whole thing wears off pretty fast. It just makes me laugh how so many people are assuming what happened. You don’t have a clue and are probably all wrong. Unless you were there just zip it. Typical.

  23. mixitup says:

    She musta seen a roach in her car. That’s the ONLY way I see that happenend.

  24. outkasted says:

    Silver car bounced off the one side of the road (causing the car to begin rolling) swerved across street hitting side walk thus completing the roll
