Unless it has just occured the cops should have photographed it from all angles and had 4-6 men push and upright that car. The one kind still on the platform should have been pulled out too.

People rubber necking in cars or just standing around assembled to look at this is more of a danger.

hhahahhaa.. yeah, i would agree that the roof is weak, but i don't think the problem that caused that was the GS being too heavy.

it didn't fall 20ft on its back on concrete.

it was parked with front facing the street.
then the car slid down face first. then fell over on its back

the c pillar hit the Rangerover, and that buckled it. not the concrete

frame is weak, no doubt about it.


so if any of you ever get into a rollover, remember to roll yourself up and get as low as you can, or else it's off with your head, if you're the rear passenger.
Driver should be safe near the b-pillar
