Apparently the MINI driver was offered a "National Driver Alertness Course" rather than a prosecution....... :o

"The shocking moment a Mini rolls over after undertaking and causing a nasty crash The dramatic crash took place in July on a dual carriageway in Poole, Dorset The MINI Cooper clips the front of the car it is undertaking before losing control. It swerves on the road before smashing into the central reservation and flipping."

Strong bodyshell though........apparently the first 1990's Rover R50 MINI test mules used Rover 200 bodyshells reduced in weight to the target weight of the MINI and with much extra stiffness added by full roll cages to match the MINI's proposed ultra stiff bodyshell, needed to achieve ultimate handling in its class at the time of launch in 2001.
