    That’s an impressive display of terrible driving. Well done.

  2. Terry says:

    Looks like it happened on private property or from a driveway.
    But yah navah know……………………..
    Definitely not speeding.

  3. High Road says:

    What the…

    Jesus Take The Wheel

  5. CommonCents says:

    The car make/models that so easily overturn should be banned from the Island. Only flip-proof cars should be imported to protect the Bermuda public.

    • me says:

      I have the exact same car and I have never ever felt like the car was going to flip. This is 100% a case of speeding and reckless driving!

    • bermy says:

      This is a joke right?

  6. inna says:

    My bet is on the person trying to run the light on the bridge !

    • bermy born says:

      Yes, I bet they ran the light & when they hit the bend, well . . .

  7. WTH says:

    Another one bites the dust.SMH

  8. Wahoo says:

    Flip!

  9. BornB says:

  10. Concerned says:

    Insurance GOING UP BIG TIME!!!

  11. Common Sense Talking says:

    @ Terry, from the pictures the car landing on its side after passing Swing Bridge, how it managed to jump the wall is another question. Stunt driver for sure.

    @ Inna, the accident happened east of Swing Bridge, meaning they person had already cleared the bridge and the light that is on the opposite side of the bridge. Not sure what on earth they were doing though.

    • bermy born says:

      Reply they may have cleared the bridge, but I have watched cars & bikes overtake me as I am coming to a stop as the light is turning red!!!

  12. MM says:

    For all you negative bloggers this was not a case of speeding nor reckless driving. Not all accidents are these scenarios. Ever think people can fall ill at the wheel. Furthermore not one of you are concerned about the well being of the individual. Yes I was there and do know the facts. Sir I wish you a speedy recovery.

    • Verly says:

      Thanks for that comment. As I passed the scene, my first thought upon looking at the positioning was that somebody had fallen ill. I agree, people are way too quick to judge/draw conclusions.

    • bermy born says:

      99% of the time it is careless driving, which includes speed!!!

      • Verly says:

        I don’t know where you get your stats from, but they’re not accurate. In any case, my point was don’t be so quick to judge. I can recall at least three accidents (one fatal) where people made comments about speed and recklessness, and it turned out to be medical situations.

  13. CLOSE YA MOUTH!! says:

    Some people should use discression! Remember, you are talking about some ones family member. Real people do have feelings!
    The driver was not speeding or drinking.
    But, did any of you insensitive people ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe the driver took sick?
    Did you think about that!? ‘Cause that’s what happened!!!

    • Zevon says:

      Of course. The driver had an overcoming.

  14. Dude says:

    Where’s my car?

  15. Simon says:

    This woke me up from my afternoon nap down in my comfy chair at southside.

  16. mmm says:

    Mechanical failure, faulty road surface or driver error —any one of these or a combination. At any rate I do hope that the driver is going to be okay. The insurance companies will no doubt be looking at every road veh icle accident, and will at some point be forced to cancel policies where it is deemed that the drivers’s are at a rather high risk to them-selves and other road users. It would be unfair, to expect the majority of road users to frequently absorb increases in premiums.

    • Dockyard says:

      usual Bermudian attitude – always someone else’s fault

  17. Albie says:

    Do you think that the cars are just so tired of going at 35k that they just want to lie down for a nap?

    • Toodle-oo says:

      hee hee , although it’s not applicable in this instance I would say that that possibility would only exist IF there were any cars here really being driven at 35 k . Something I rarely to never see .

      It’s very ironic that on the one day of the week that people don’t need to rush everywhere (Sunday) is the day that I see most cars racing like they’re going to the Daytona 500 and I stand the greatest chance of being killed .

    • bermy born says:

      LOL

  18. i was actually there and saw what happened !! says:

    I was driving the vehicle right behind this car and can confirm 100% that he wasn’t speeding (not even close to it !!!) we were stopped at the stop light and as we pulled off he passed out. I was also there as he was pulled out of the vehicle and he had no clue where he was. After today I will no longer take social media pictures for face value after being the closest possible witness to this accident and seeing these comments from people who as usual have no clue !!! I’m just glad that he was ok because watching it happen it looked REALLY BAD !!!

    • Time Shall Tell says:

      I was a couple cars behind this car but didn’t get to see what happened. What I can say is the traffic flow as a whole at the time of this crossing was anything but speeding.

  19. Triangle Drifter says:

    Bermuda drivers need training wheels on their cars.

  20. Ian Millen says:

    Bermudas roads were designed for horse and cart or loan riders not cars! Add the idiot factor and your in trouble for Gods sake chill out nothing is so important it requires stupid driving!

  21. Ok for the record. I would like to thank all those who was there to help me
    In this situation bless up for real. For all those who like to jump to conclusions gods speed to you. It was not speed drinking or drugs I fainted at the wheel for reasons unknown to me.. The staff at the hospital is doing all they can to find out what happened. Again thank you to the big man Luffie ,Parfitt cuz Jason Ming , Vernon and the the other persons who came to my assistance God bless you all. And thank to the staff at KEMH for all you are doing for me.

    • bermy born says:

      Glad you are OK. Meanwhile, I hope you see your GP full a full medical as until then, you should not be driving or operating any machinery or be by yourself until the Dr. gives you a clean bill of health . . . You were very fortunate today.

    • Judes says:

      My friend I am so glad you are ok.Like I said call me if you need me.ONE LOVE!!!

  22. What?? says:

    Hey bermy born

    First you were a clairvoyant..

    “Yes, I bet they ran the light & when they hit the bend, well . . .”

    then you were a road safety expert…

    “99% of the time it is careless driving, which includes speed!!!”

    and now you’re a doctor…

    “you should not be driving or operating any machinery or be by yourself”.

    That’s one amazing skill set you have demonstrated on just this one story. At least you finally expresses some concern for the welfare of the driver.
