A CAR has flipped onto its roof causing traffic chaos on a Hampshire motorway.

The Seat Ibiza has overturned on the M3 hard shoulder and emergency services are trying to free a man trapped inside.

Two fire engines, two ambulances, a doctor and police are at the scene just before junction 11 for Winchester on the northbound carriageway and the incident is causing tailbacks to junction 13 at Chandler's Ford.

The man's injuries are not known but at this stage not thought to be life threatening.

The car was the only vehicle involved in the crash, at 8.50am this morning.

Is this some sort of new craze that's going on, see who can flip their car in the most inconvenient place?

Nearly every day in or around Southampton a car is reported in the Daily Echo as ending up on it's roof , causing major hold ups.

The only way a car can end up on it's roof is down to excessive speed and catching the kerb with it's wheels ( in other words bad driving ).

You haven't got the faintest idea what you're talking about, I'm afraid. Typical Echo moron, convinced that every last thing that ever happens is the result of someone else being incompetent.

You have learnt everything and know nothing. Does it say how the car flipped? you would be good on a jury.

You would prefer everything to be considered an 'accident', and therefore learn nothing?

I think we have quite enough of that type of thinking when it comes to motorists behaviour.

If only there was some way we could judge each individual case on it's merits, rather than applying the same opinion to everything.

Clowns like you who can only think in terms of absolutes should not be entitled to an opinion, to be perfectly frank.

It should be trivial for you to provide twenty links to stories of cars ending up on roofs this year alone, then. Go for it.

There could be several reasons why a car would end up on its roof. It could even be a mechanical issue (such as a steering spur snapping). I wonder which garage all these flipping cars are usually maintained...
(I'm sure speed may be a factor in some of these instances, but as I did not witness these I cannot judge).
