    hit a low flying witch on her broomstick!

    • Longtail says:

      Yes, looks like some low flying was involved. Accidents like this should not be happening so frequently in little Bermuda.

      • Family Man says:

        Nothing accidental about that.

        Speed, carelessness or more than a few intoxicants will do it every time. Just pure luck an innocent road user wasn’t badly hurt.

      • Toodle-oo says:

        What do you mean ‘Accidents like this should not be happening so frequently in little Bermuda ‘ ?

        Irrespective of our tiny size we unquestionably have more out of control drivers per square mile than most other places on earth .

        I’m surprised it doesn’t happen multiple times a day . I dread going for a ride anywhere and have for a long time .

        • Inabermystylie says:

          We also have some of the worst drivers I have ever seen…no regard for any of the rules on the road.

    • MAKE MY DAY says:

      Yea…..Hillary Clinton!!!

  2. Balaruse' says:

    Looks like an eggsident

  3. Doc says:

    The sign says frequent accident spot so it’s to be expected.

    • Whistling Frog says:

      LMAO…

    • Barbara D Cooper says:

      Its time for traffic lights at that junction – although that won’t help if a careless drive is involved !

  4. Some Beach says:

    Let me guess…the umpires car….correct?

  5. Ginnie Stewart says:

    Fortunate driver and passengers not seriously injuries..please .slow down Bermuda…..

  6. MAKE MY DAY says:

    Another alcohol, careless driving/speeding or drug related event??

    • alafiyah says:

      maybe none of the three you say, could be texting, on the phone, or something more sinister ‘no what I’m sain’ A whole pile of stuff goes on while driving smh

  7. Honestly says:

    Wow! What if the person wasn’t speeding, alcohol wasn’t involved, and the person could’ve fallen asleep, misjudged the corner. Be for real what else could’ve gone wrong here. Always negative n alcohol involved. I don’t have a clue myself, but think of all possibilities before commenting! Clearly a frequent accident spot!

    • Zevon says:

      Ah yes. The all- encompassing “I fell asleep” or “I had an overcoming” excuse. Of course. That must have been what happened.

  8. BLOW IN says:

    TRICK or TREAT ?????

  9. dream says:

    that’s a junction where, no matter what over the last 50 years, is continually a frequent accident spot. time for traffic lights?

    • Zevon says:

      Why? This wasn’t a collision. It was a single- idiot-accident.

  10. ImJustSayin says:

    What about a blown tire or brake failure or a medical condition . Why do we always think so cynical.

  11. boston baked bean says:

    I can’t believe all the careless and stupid comments this accident elicited. This has been a “frequent accident spot” for as long as I can remember. Instead of blaming the driver, why in the world can’t a traffic light be put there? Is it virtually impossible for anything on the island to be done proactively?

    • Family Man says:

      Seriously?

      He hit the wall and flipped that car before he even reached the “frequent accident spot”.

      But that’s OK, he probably ‘just fell asleep’ so that justifies everything in Bermuda. It’s always somebody else’s fault. Never any personal responsibility.

    • Zevon says:

      He could have pro actively avoided driving like a maniac. Just a thought.

    • Artsy Onion says:

      Usually when someone is coming off of Tee a Street & turning onto Middle Road. Judging from the state of Ainslie’s steps the SUV must have been traveling west on Middle Road & struck the steps to overturn! I would say speed had something to do with that & for a change not the junction.

  12. I must agree with, “boston baked bean” and others that feel as we do. e.g.”Is it virtually impossible for anything on the island to be done proactively.”
    I know countless families mourn the death of loved ones in that particular spot / area and warning signs aren’t preventing others from getting / being killed…Therefore, due to various reasons why not be proactive? “An oz. of prevention is worth a lb. of cure.”

  13. Terry says:

    Just one look at the tires on this vehicle and how nice it did look is the answer.
    Shalom.

  14. Smith says:

    Another of these dangerous walls in the wrong place. Government should take all these walls down and then accidents like this wouldn’t happen.

    • Typhoon51 says:

      The wall is innocent. It did not jump out and hit the car/suv. The person driving the car/suv hit the wall. Take the driver off the road and have some sympathy for the wall. The only person who will comfort that innocent wall will be Dr. Mason.

  15. Kings Point says:

    Glad no one innocent was hurt.
