Warning to young drivers as car is overturned

A MAN has urged young drivers to be more careful after finding a car which had flipped on to its roof.

James Stuart took photographs on his mobile phone after coming across the car near Luxters Wood in Hambleden at about 6.30pm on Saturday.

He said: “The driver was a young lad. I think he had swerved to avoid a car and hit a very low bank, which flipped the car on to its roof.

“Hopefully, this will highlight the dangers to young people who are not experienced drivers and make them think, ‘I need to drive more carefully’. It is all about education.

“I think inexperienced drivers on country roads need to be particularly aware that there are low banks that can flip your car like this.”

Mr Stuart, who lives in Turville Heath and is a partner for Woods Wines, said he was initially concerned that someone might be trapped in the car.

He said: “I thought, ‘oh my goodness, what has happened, is someone in there but it became apparent that wasn’t the case.

“The driver was a bit cut and battered and shaken up but he seemed okay.”

A couple from Fawley helped the driver, who was about 18. He had been driving from Banbury and had recently broken up for the school holidays.
