Really dodgy road that, I’ve felt my car almost “take off” at times. You don’t know the fact so “without a doubt” is unqualified.

I would say put your hazards on to warn people of a crash but since the lights are completely gone I guess you’d needn’t bother.

It must be mad driving, even kids on board doesn’t stop idiots, judging by the photos I can’t come up with another explanation.

Thank god the kids are ok, the experience will be with them for years to come..

Is it just me, but a lot, if not all these resent crashes seem to happen on the new road surface.
I hear horses find it hard to grip on said roads.
Just a thought.

You lot should be crash investigation experts. You all seem to be self qualified.
Why not stand at the side of the road wagging your fingers.
You have no idea what happened here, this is the lives of some unfortunate family that your judging in an offhand way.

What you’ve said is fair comment Tim, but those making ‘accusatory’ comments are probably, like myself, careful drivers who’ve overtaken hundreds of tractors (in my case during 49 years of driving) and never ended up in a field – is that just down to luck??? I think we’re just exasperated by reading about this apparent ‘epidemic’ of single-vehicle car crashes. My opinion is that most people are always in a mad rush to get where they’re going at the expense of driving carefully (all of the time). If something else caused this incident e.g.mechanical failure, avoiding an animal on the road, avoiding an oncoming vehicle etc. then I will eat a large portion of humble pie. In any case, I hope those involved all recover quickly.

50mph is far to fast to drive on winding island country roads,especially this time of year,but to be fair if it was reduced to 40mph i would still have brain dead people overtaking me at 60mph,of course we don’t know if speed was the problem here but I do wish people would slow down.
