A driver escaped injury after losing control of his car as it left a Fenland road and rolled over several times.
Police say eye witnesses report the car – that they say was new- was driving within the speed limit when the crash happened.
A police spokesman said: “The driver walked away practically unscathed.
“The photo of the wreck shows how lucky he was.”
The spokesman added: “The car was brand new and perfectly roadworthy (before the crash!) and witnesses state he was driving well within the speed limit.”

The officer who shared the crash photo on the Policing Wisbech Facebook page said: “I’ve posted this across the entire Fenland area intentionally as the roads are equally as dangerous if you allow yourself to get too complacent.”
He said the message was quite simple: “Drive safely”.

Witnesses say the car plunged into a field before rolling over several times.
One resident told police: “The roads are so bumpy there. “You have to be so careful, even when driving safely; you have to keep your wits about you.
“The speed limit should be lowered on some of the roads; you bounce all over the place.”
Wisbech town councillor (and taxi driver) Billy Rackley said: “It’s a shocking bit of road if you go over 40mph”.
