Upside Down and walked away!!

By pgarwood
This a car that managed to turn over in front of me on Sunday. I managed with another guy to crawl in through the back door and helped get the elderly couple out.They seemed to be shocked, cut and bruised but walked away quite unaware of how lucky that had been!!Took these before the police arrived as they dont like it when someone takes pictures!!

Well caught!
I'm used to seeing these on a daily basis - please don't get them out though - I know you meant well but due to the state of the car it was extrememly likely that they could have suffered from spinal injuries, and moving them could have paralysed them. Just staying and comforting them is worth more than anything.
Despite that, i'm glad they were both okay!
Well done for being a helping hand!

Insurance companies like pictures of the damage (including what was hit).
The Police shouldn't say a thing unless you are getting in the way (if ANYTHING gets moved before accident investigators get there it can make it harder to annalise so they like pictures as well)

You seem to have a habit of finding upside down cars. Well shot.
