Photographer's Note

Not the best way to park your rental car.

This happened in the deep south of New Zealand's south island. We came around a corner and there it was. The driver had obviously taken the corner too fast and lost control on the gravel. The SUV had flipped and rolled when it hit the embankment.

Everyone inside was ok (rather lucky, considering how smashed in the front of the roof is). Just a few bruises and scratches. Once we made sure they were safely on their way to the nearest service station for a tow truck and a game of who-has-to-call-the-rental-guys-to-explain, I took a snap of the scene.
