Despite the severity of the roll Steve and his young son escaped with minor cuts and bruises.
The accident happened on 8th September, Lesley Hewlett, who was in a following vehicle commented. ‘It was terrifying; it was like it was in slow motion watching it roll completely over then again on its side, I just didn't know what I was going to find when I got to them’
Club members rallied to the scene to help recover the vehicle and give Steve and family emotional support in this traumatic incident. Members were shocked at how little protection a Defender gives in this kind of accident, and were amazed that no one was seriously injured.
The club is determined to help rebuild Clarence and get Steve back on the road. There has also been considerable talk about the benefits of roll cages on Land Rovers among those who have seen photos of the crash scene.
