Ouch, that was quite a ride!

The driver did try to catch it but couldn't.

Nasty rolls too.

shows how safe modern cars can be for it to roll so many times and the occupants to walk/stumble away.

I was mostly amazed that the roof didn't cave in despite 4 rolls! very reassuring.

Glad people stopped to help, I know I would have!! but I thought stopping wasn't allowed? or is it different when there's a life-threatening accident?

Jesus!!! That was some impact! At first it looked as if it was just gonna be a barrier hit but that bounce was something wicked!

Makes me feel a bit happier that I am driving a safe car after seeing those 2 walk away!

i saw this come up on my YT feed at the weekend - surprised he got out with mearly a stumble (probably more shook up than injury) and surprised how well the car stood up without a roll cage.

-1 civic and a lot of money, but at least he lives to see another day!

Luckily the security of "modern"cars are good. The roof supported the impact very well.
Shame for the poor civic...

Have you seen how thick the A pillars are on the FN2?
