  1. The car flipped like that and the driver was” luckily not injured” ??? I would say a lot more Neis than luck, here! Hodu LaHashem ki tov, ki l’Olam chasdo…

  2. The driver went for a roller coaster ride, I saw him walk away with out a scratch, LPD, EMS, LFA and Hatzolah were there in minutes, thank you!

  3. Never swerve unless 100% possible… a car driving at 40 miles per hour will Almost 100% of the time flip over if you swerve rapidly, I know it’s human reaction to Swerve but that is the worst thing you can do to yourself. Worse comes to worst you damage your car but you save yourself. I’m talking from personal experience. Just ask the cops will tell you the same thing
