DRIVER ESCAPES INJURY AFTER CAR ROLLS ONTO SIDE IN BRADING

Published:

The driver of a Vauxhall Corsa has escaped injury after rolling their vehicle in Brading.

Police are in attendance on Coach Lane this evening (Wednesday) where the small hatchback car has come to a rest on its side.

Island Echo understands the young woman clipped a muddy verge at low speed, enough to gently roll the car over.

Guys & Girls too many accidents today drive safely meaning slower than usual the roads have salt recently applied so they are greasy unfortunately that is part of the course better than ice but when you brake be more wise to skids so slower is better and keep a distance more concentration too. Think before you react have a safe Christmas

How on earth can you “gently” roll a car over by clipping a verge? It can’t have been that low a speed, or the car would have remained upright. Even a small car like a Corsa weighs around a ton.

Inaccurate reporting it seems, if you look at the car the RHS wheels are almost touching the verge, therefore less of a clip and more of a “tried to drive up the steep verge”. That this was done at low speed does not speak highly of the driving/paying attention capabilities of the young woman concerned, though hope she is well.

When we were 17 a mate of mine did this in his MKI Escort. When the car was righted it had hardly marked the vinyl roof. Easily done at low speed.

Fact. She was NOT on phone. She WAS concentrating. She avoided car in front, skidded on mud on road and the rest is history. That road is dangerous as always has mud on it from the fields behind so no more nasty comments please. It could happen to you one day…..would you be on your phone texting or not concentrating because you would be male!,!,!,!,

lebweb – yeah right – funny how the rest of us can manage to drive that road day in day out, without skidding on mud. She wouldn’t have needed to avoid the car in front, if she wasn’t driving so close to it, especially as the article claims that she was at low speed.

These bumps and scrapes happen and its called learning and we are all guilty when we started to drive of making the odd mistake and we got away with it however flipping a car is something you need help getting out of I mean can you imagine how hard it was to climb out of that car with the door weighing a lot having to be opened then lifted up! My only concern is there are 5 headlines in the echo and 4 are car accidents! and for such a small island thats not good! Maybe the police should run top up courses for Islanders and show them how to drive safely! The mainland is faster and more dangerous and if you have an accident over here chances are you will suffer more serious injuries

This was a bit more serious than “bumps and scrapes”.

It’s usually the younger drivers making nasty comments towards elderly drivers, but the younger drivers are the ones that create most accidents…Fact!!!

In my days, young ladies would not drive themselves anywhere. A man would do such things, and to be truthful, the roads then were far safer for such.
