Well guys at about 11AM today my mom comes running downstairs and says my grandma had 'rolled' the Explorer. Turns out...she did.

She flipped end over end, not rolled, completely. All of this after flying 30 feet after ramping a driveway.

Yea...we didn't get a picture of the beginning. She went off the road, ramped up a driveway, and then nose dived, then flipped, etc.

She got so much air that she cleared a 2.5-3 foot bush haha.

I will say...where she went off, you can't really recover from that easy. But still, could have been prevented.
