    Ouch; you have got to be doing some serious speed to achieve that kind of damage.

    Edit:

    A policeman was dragged from his car when it overturned and landed on its roof.
    The officer, believed to be in his 40s, was driving an unmarked Golf along Wharfside Way, Old Trafford, today at 2am.
    He was given oxygen at the scene and taken to hospital with suspected spinal injuries, where he remains in a stable condition.
    No other vehicle was involved in the accident, which happened near a roundabout.
    The officer is from the automatic number plate recognition intercept unit, which patrols car crime hotspots.
    Vehicles are fitted with cameras to check details associated with particular number plates.
    The road was closed for several hours so police could examine the scene and officers from the road traffic unit are now investigating the accident.
    Fire crews from Stretford station used a spine board to ease the man out of the car.
    Crew manager Tony Sheldon said: "The car was on its roof and the man was on his back so we were able to rescue him through the car window."
    A police spokesman said: "A police officer in an unmarked vehicle was involved in a single vehicle collision on Wharfside Way, Old Trafford.
    "The officer was injured in the collision and has been taken to the Manchester Royal Infirmary suffering a back injury. No members of the public were involved.
    "The collision is being investigated by specially trained officers from Greater Manchester Police's road policing unit."

    Like the way they've said 'IT' overturned and landed on its roof. Nothing to do with his driving then?!

    The police never drop a boob and are perfect drivers. That's why there are never any smashed police cars parked at the local police HQ.......



    Oh no...... hang on.... there are bloody dozens of them
