Just got in from work & the police have got a section of Grove Road shut, from Sea Road lights towards the Nelson Pub. There is a car on its roof on the pavement - must have been shifting !

If you email them over to me I can put them on photobucket? Or you could do it yourself? They allow such sizes to be uploaded?

Or you could link to them from there.

Saw the crash myself, well not the actual crash but the aftermath. Must have been going very, very fast. Wonder if the person inside was OK, didnt seem to be too many people about so would assume so.

Boy racer or old... was a given.

I hope the old boy makes a recovery, the mess didn't look pretty.

It was a Suzuki Jimny 03 reg, Black or Dark Blue.

Probably not the hardest things to flip over.

wow, madness, would be interesting to find how it flipped, those are very slow on acceleration.

Hope the peeps are ok, must have been a shocking experience for them frown

Yeah, I live close to there and heard loads of emergency sirens.... Being a dog walker, that set of lights is really hazardous as trying to cross with dog has proved. Loads of cars trying to outdo the red light...it needs a pedestrian thingy putting on it. Hope the gentleman and lady are ok.

Car maybe on its roof, but the shell / roof looks to be in tact. If belts were correctly worn the occupants should be ok smile

Looks like it has just caught the wall at a funny angle and flipped - 20mph+ could flip a car if the angle was right.

Guess the only question is how did the old boy manage to leave the road?
