Driver's lucky escape after flipping onto roof

This Is Wiltshire: Driver's lucky escape after flipping onto roof Driver's lucky escape after flipping onto roof

A SINGLE male driver had a narrow escape when he emerged from his vehicle largely unharmed after it flipped onto its roof close to Ashton Keynes yesterday.

The commercial vehicle was travelling along a country road close to the village at around 3pm yesterday in wet conditions when it struck the grass verge and overturned into the middle of the road.

Sgt Martin Avis, of Wiltshire Police, said: “This was a lucky escape of the single male occupant. The roads are wet so drivers should take care.”

Modern day tyres Do blow out. With the current mass production of tyre's there is a possibility of a few faulty tyres slipping though quality control in the factorys having worked as a tyre fitter I have came across this myself.

No age given but I can guess. Some drivers could control a blow out at reasonable speeds. You will never ever know the speed involved so why comment on it being too fast? Some vans can roll over at 20 mph. Ha.
