Watch jeep overturn
A security camera captured the accident caused by the driver who had lost control of the vehicle as he was driving at high velocity. In one of the curves of the road, the driver had tried to stabilize the vehicle by pressing the brakes all the way.
However, this caused the jeep to overturn at least six times before stopping. Luckily the driver, who had his seatbelt on, managed to pull himself out of the jeep. The jeep was badly damaged.
Drivers passing by quickly called for rescue forces. The soldier was discharged from hospital last Thursday after undergoing extensive treatment.
Traffic Police and Military Police are investigating the accident.
