Tuesday night + black ice = Dead car

Patch of ice was just beyond police car.
Walked away with broken finger and few bruises.

Although it doesn't look like it, the car rolled.
I can remember being upside down and thinking oh sh1t.
I have dashcam footage, but it's all over so quick.
The only glass left on car is the windscreen. Everything I had in the boot got thrown out, including the parcel shelf

That looks nasty. Could have been a lot worse though I guess.

Looks like you were running steel wheels. Winter tyres...?
