Three survive crash miracle as car somersaults into garden

THREE young men escaped from the wreckage of this car which somersaulted several times before landing in a garden.

One of the occupants walked away from the scene, while two others are receiving hospital treatment after the crash on the outskirts of Killarney, Co Kerry.

The Toyota Avensis is understood to have left the road, clipped a tree and flipped through the air before bursting through a fence and landing upside down.

One eyewitness said it was a miracle that nobody died. "It reminded me of that ad on television when a car somersaults into the garden," he said. Gardai are investigating.
