What were the events leading to it rolling?

Another Angle

Don't you all think we are paying these guys too much.

A Landrover at £20000 +

A Nice big RIB with twin engines, nearly new or new at £25000 plus.

Do they really need this kit ?

If anyone can reason why then I will be glad to listen.

I reckon my 4 meter Sea Rider would do all they want and cost a hell of a lot less.

Its not as if they are chasing drug runners or terrorists. That job is for the Police. Or am I missing something here.

No actually

Car:
2001 Land Rover Discovery
Description:
7 ton steel coil fell from a truck and hit the car head on.

Location:
Perth, Australia

Injury Report:
Driver was killed instantly - no suprise there!!!

Having seen the mess a Land Rover can make on a normal car it just goes to show the only thing that would have survived the steel coil would have been a tank or maybe a dozer with the blade down!!!
