The car was at 100 km/h at that moment, which is how he lost control of the vehicle.
After losing control of the vehicle. the car went off the road and as per the post, it made four rollovers, which is quite extreme. The owner has shared the pictures of the car and they are not pretty, to say the least. The vehicle is damaged completely from the driver side and the roof also caved in because of the rollover.
The owner says that he was unconscious when the locals came to rescue him. He also had a few flesh wounds on his right hand and thinks that his hand got stuck between the roof and the door. His two friends did not get any kind of injuries at all and got only a few minor scratches.
Bought a new Tiago
