Cars don’t just “roll over” of their own accord – if we’re going to be serious about road trauma, we’re going to have to stop blaming inanimate objects.

Hope the lady was not seriously injured.

Another example of how SUVs with their designed high centre of gravity are prone to flip in minor collisions.

    Really? You blame the SUV’s centre of gravity – not human/driver error? Quite remarkable.

    SUV? Really?! That looks like a Honda CRV, which is neither sports, or utility.
