Land Rover Defender 6-Time Rollover Is Horrific

This shows how well the new design is holding up...
The sad truth is, even if you're a careful driver, all it takes is someone else to perform silly maneuvers that cost you dearly on the road. This is exactly what happened to the driver of a new Land Rover Defender who rolled over 6 times, all thanks to another driver who wasn't paying attention. Life comes at you fast and this is a terrible reminder of it.

As captured in dashcam footage of a third vehicle, the Defender is traveling in the right lane on Interstate 4 in Orlando, Fla., when a Mazda crossover a few lanes down suddenly cuts off to pull out at the last moment. We've all seen this reckless move on freeways too many times.
The funny thing is, as a new driver, I was taught that if you're not in the right lane and can't get out safely, it's best to just turn around at the next exit rather than run over and potentially cause a major accident. The Mazda driver was apparently never taught this basic principle, which far too many drivers these days don't seem to understand.
Probably because an articulated lorry blocks the view, the Mazda doesn't see the Land Rover until it's too late and brushes against the back of the British SUV. The impact sends the Defender to the left, then the SUV rolls back and forth six times, the penultimate violent revolution catapults the vehicle over the cement partition.
This is the kind of accident that kills people or leaves them horribly maimed. Instead, the person who uploaded the video claims the Land Rover driver and passenger escaped with minor injuries. Luckily the Mazda didn't flee the scene, so we're assuming they got a nice subpoena and maybe had to find a new insurance provider.
This type of video should be shown to new drivers to illustrate why it is incredibly dangerous to cross multiple lanes to exit because you are not careful. Check out the video for yourself.
