It really take little speed to flip a car over. I saw someone flip a car over backing out of a parking space behind Immaculate Conception in Bloomfield they were going about 5-10 miles an hour

I said the same thing about driving fast. The other driver hit a telephone pole and disabled their vehicle I believe.

I really think car engineers have it all backwards. all the safety features should be on the outside of the vehicle.

technically, you don’t have to be driving it at all, just really strong or parked on the edge of a nice hill…

It’s ahrd to tell what exactly happened from teh story. It’s possible that the flipped Beemer was even totally stopeed – and hit by the other car with high momentum.

I’m guessing that both drivers were violating the law, but I could be completely wrong.

I’d bet no one gets prosecuted, unless evidence of intoxication is found. We’ve seen – over and over again – that it is legal to kill someone with a car as long as you are sober.
