    That was excellent. Full left lock and max power before the wheels had even
    touched the ground. He would have rolled a long way otherwise. Smart guy.

    Certainly showed a clear head, despite the situation. Ironically if
    the other 4x4 hadn't have been where it was, he wouldn't have rolled
    it. You see him try to steer round the other 4x4, which is what causes
    the roll.

    not entirely convinced - he'd got a swerve on before that, and I reckon the
    front end was dues to overtake the back anyway. Mind, WTF the other one was
    doing at the top of a hill people are trying to climb is anyone's guess.
