Greg has sent in these images of Kambah’s efforts to not be left behind in the extreme parking stakes. Taken just off Sulwood drive.

How did it roll like that.. the tracks are still on the ground pretty much all the way upto the car?

Probably was nearly stopped and just tipped over when it dug in.

Suspect it tripped on that tape wrapped around its wheels.

The arsehat who got upside-down on Parkes Way on Friday arvo (westbound exiting Anzac Pde roundabout) deserves an honourable mention too … brought peak hour to a standstill … hard to fathom how it was achieved, but am happy to assume the driver was male and wearing hi-vis.)

Looks like the car got tangled up in that police bunting and tripped over.

My guess is he tried to swerve to miss hitting Kambah.

You seriously cant see by the skid marks how it fell over?

I might add I say there was a bit of shannigans going in the dirt as that is a pretty straight bit of road & that is a massive dirt area.

It’s not a white Commodore so generally not the choice of car for hoons so maybe the driver swerved to avoid a ‘roo?

Yep, they tell the story pretty clearly – you can see where the vehicle began to oversteer (back wheels step out.) Then you can see where the front right tyre dug in and the rear wheels have carved through the grass slope shows just how fully sideways the vehicle was, which then caught and flipped.

Possibly would have been better just going straight ahead – it would have been nasty, but not as hazardous as a roll.

There’s a white commodore further up Sulwood drive in Wanniassa also with police tape on it.. Must have been a night of stolen cars..

Its a T-Section. I say the car flew up the hill and must have been trying to dodge another car or screwed up majorly.

Whomever did the police tape totally missed a spot

I’d say whomever did the police tape was called in halfway through a very good party.

Saw that white Commodore this morning and had a laugh – did his sump going straight through the roundabout (apparently on the wrong side of the road). (Not to mention rims). Lucky he missed the central light pole. Oil all over the road. Nice work. Complete and utter &^%$#up. .

when I went through the roundabout late yesterday afternoon, you could still smell the oil. at least there was sand over the oil and a warning sign.

The cop responsible for the tape really needs to work on their technique before next Christmas. Or perhaps hire someone from the DJs gift counter next time they need to wrap a car!

When I drove past this car on Saturday around 12:50pm there was a person sunbaking next to the car. (police car going towards it the other way so didn’t stop).

I really don’t know how this happened cos nobody in there right mind would approach any intersection T intersection from Manniheim, Inkster of Livingstone without being prepared to stop during anytime of the day as the traffic is steady all day long. The dirt bit that runs aside Sulwood is quite wide as well.

This also happened between 10.30 am and 12:50 pm (as it wasn’t there on our way out but there on our way home).

oh wait I didn’t go past it on the way out My mistake sorry. We went to the O’halloran service station for petrol as the Marconi one is crap after the renovation. (only 1 E10 pump and not a lot of queing space) so we went up Athlon instead of Sulwood

Saw this car driving up Drakeford drive at 11:40 Saturday morning in between two lanes. Just before the Kambah Shopping centre they swerved up the middle island and ran over a give way sign then went back on their merry way.

So it was simultaneously on its roof beside Sulwood, and knocking down signs on Drakeford?

I told them not to search of that Higgs’ Boson – now you’re seeing the inevitable result.
