- Speeding car out of control before flipping
A woman has defied death after a dramatic high speed accident in which her car was out of control and rolled repeatedly on a busy freeway.
The crash, which happened on the Kwinana Freeway at Bibra Like, just south of Perth at 5.30pm on Saturday, was captured by another driver’s dash cam.
Miraculously no other vehicles were struck in the terrifying incident and nobody but the driver was injured.
WA police are investigating why the frightening accident occurred.
The footage initially shows a red Hyundai appearing to move much faster than cars around it as it flies up behind the other car.

But before the vehicle can hit the car in front, it veers left, across the emergency stopping lane and up over a concrete gutter.
It then flies along the median strip, remarkably overtaking the car filming it on dash cam while it isn’t even on the road.
But then then appears to strike an object in the dirt, causing it to flip and roll multiple times on its side.
As the car rolls it stirs up a huge dirt cloud. Pieces of the car are thrown out of the cloud and into the air.
Remarkably it appeared to avoid concrete light poles just centimetres away.

Eventually the rolling slows and eventually the car drops onto its roof.
Witnesses said a woman ‘in her 30s… crawled’ out of the mangled wreck, 9News reported.
Her head was bleeding but she was able to talk, ‘complaining of abdominal pain’.
The woman was rushed to Royal Perth Hospital.
As of Sunday afternoon she was in the hospital’s intensive care ward in a serious but stable condition.
