    Down.

    These lot need to slow down bie. Everyone thinks it’s a joke until it happens to them. Sort ya lives out bruv, this isn’t a joke and take life more seriously. I pray that everything goes well with the injured persons. And that it’s a lesson well learnt! Take your damn time!

    maybe just maybe, the driver of the car, tried to avoid the cycle and over steered causing the car to mount the embankment. It would be very hard for that car to overturn if he was travelling up the hill

  5. Just a thought says:

    Does there seem to be a large amount of accidents on tee street recently, or is it just my imagination?

  6. Shush says:

    It would also be VERY hard to overturn a car doing 35kph

      You are VERY WRONG!
      A vehicle can be unstable at ANY SPEED given the right conditions!

      See below for a simple application of highschool physics:

      - Can you calculate your vehicle speed in feet per second? (multiply mph by 1.47. For example, 60 mph = 88 feet/second.)
      - Can you square that number? (like 882 = 7744.)
      - Can you estimate the radius of a curve in a road? (like 250 feet).
      - Can you divide the first by the second? (like 7744/250 or 31). This gives the LATERAL ACCELERATION of the vehicle. (like 31 ft/sec2 or 0.97 G).

      Then you already know nearly everything you need to know whether your vehicle will roll over in that sort of turn!

      You DO also need two measurements of your vehicle. One is called the Track, which is the distance between the two tires on an axle (like 60″).
      The other is called the height of the center-of-gravity (like 30″).
      You then take TWICE the second number and divide it by the first (like 30 * 2 / 60 or 1.0) and multiply that by the acceleration you had gotten above. (like 31 ft/sec2 * 1.0).
      IF that number is ABOVE 32, the vehicle WILL roll over. If it is BELOW 32, it will not.
      This example (31) would be extremely close to great danger.
      There IS the possibility that the tires might not have enough traction to the road, so the tires could break loose and slide straight, which could change the problem from a rollover to the vehicle going out of control.
      Pretty simple, huh? But that is essentially all that is needed to calculate an APPROXIMATE idea of whether YOUR vehicle is stable or not at any speed and around any turn! There are some additional factors, but they all make the situation worse and never better.

      Nah not true. I flipped my car in the air to its side on an embankment just like that on Burnt House Hill While in traffic that crawling between 30-35kph

    Wonder if the driver had his foot on the brake as he slid, inverted, down the road? Good crash. Those SUV wanna be’s are far from being the most stable vehicles on the road & hitting that embankment must have been like hitting a springboard at a stuntshow.

    wtf????????????
