Fortunately it seems like Keiran Johnson of Free Spirit 4x4 got away lightly, just a stiff neck and a bruised ego! It appears on a tarmac road at 50 mph some steering component broke on his Landy, causing it to roll three times!!!

Could have been so much seeing as though there were 2 Bushpig BBQ's and a metal tool box floating around in the back.

Moral of the story, whether off-roading or not, ratchet down everything in the back.

Hi all, just spoke with kieran he is OK sore neck shoulder and arm, so off work for a while,
nothing broke on motor he hid debries on the road and that poped wheel of rim, at to go over to hedge, instead of hiting a car coming other way.
