Car flips on Fairmount Avenue in Hyde Park at 4 a.m.

Amalia Cerro photographed the aftermath of the car turned turtle just up from Truman Parkway early this morning, reports everybody got out OK.

How do or can you flip a car on a city street?
I'm not a driver so I honestly have no idea.

There's a few ways, mostly involving driving too fast. If you hit a curb or a jersey barrier or a wall or another car just the right way, the car can just bounce to get unbalanced and then drive up whatever you hit and flip over. Even just taking a turn too sharply at too high a speed can do it, though that is usually more an SUV or truck issue than a car.

Or just drive a Reliant Robin:
