Default Crazy LX 570 crash

The guy was speeding, tried to pass two trucks at the same time using highway divider, hit some road debris left by construction guys and rolled over. Looks like passengers weren't buckled up and were scattered across the road but alive.Big testament to how well the car is built.

I don't think so, on a second video you can see the kid waiving his hands? So he is definitely alive. You can see the camera guy passing the truck so either camera guy and all the trucks were going very slow (which I think is unlikely) or LX going way too fast. You can also spot tire marks from truck braking hard on the second video and these are quite long so truck wasn't going very slow.

I actually noticed that camera guy has speed reading on his camera (it's in Russian). He is going ~100 KPH hour which is ~62 MPH.

I would guess as much... the LX was going at least 90MPH.

I'm kind of surprised anybody survived at all... it shows how greatly the car handled this!

Hope we are ALL reminded that even our LX570 can not escape the laws of physics. 90 mph is OK unless you need to change direction!

No seatbelts? They might as well been driving a Pinto! All the LX570 steel will not help in the least unless you stay in the vehical!

From the time the LX passes the camera guy it stays visible on the camera till the crash.

Yeah he didn't follow the whole video clip, and also the rear bumper that LX has the gard on match with the one is flip over, but i wonder how did he lost control? Look on the video clip, look like where the LX roll over was at the straight road?

Around 2:12 on the first video you can see two piles of construction debris. I think the driver hit one of these which at 90MPH sent the car flying followed by a rollover. At least that seems to be the most probable explanation.

I think on a pure flat road even at 90MPH VSC will prevent the car from rolling over otherwise but that's a theory don't know if anybody ever tested it.
