If you were driving in the rain on a two-lane highway, caught a tire on the edge of the pavement and flipped your car, what would you do? Let out a yelp, maybe a scream? We would too, but somehow this woman found herself in a barrel roll and remained totally silent; completely composed. After the crash, the woman is fully conscious - even slightly perturbed judging by the look on her face. We're just glad she wasn't seriously injured (and we hope nobody else was, either).

Let's try and learn something from this. First, it's a good idea to try to keep both hands on the wheel in a crash, if for no other reason than to prevent them from poking out the side window. Second, keep the interior of your car clean. The woman is lucky none of the stuff in her back seat flew to the front and injured her. Finally, drive very carefully on wet roads, especially if you live in a dry area that doesn't see much rain; the first rain of the season can make oil-covered roads very slick.

Check out the video below to see the barrel roll and how calmly the woman handles it.

      Kind of frightening how easy it is to totally lose control of a vehicle.

      I've had this happen to me once in the rain a long time ago but I went down a tall/steep hill with bushes and trees and didn't roll over. What happens is time slows down and you know there is nothing you can do. In your mind, your just wait and wait for it to stop. It feels like an eternity, but you aren't scared at all.

        As someone that just rolled their car yesterday, I can say this is pretty accurate. I only rolled once, pretty much knew I was in for some **** but there was nothing I could do. Hit some black ice, slid off the road into a large marker stone next to a driveway, went airborne and rolled once, totaled my car. http://imgur.com/a/9FJHI

      Actually, you want to cross your hands on your chest and grab the seat belt or your shirt. There's a reason you don't grab the steering wheel or hook your thumbs in the spokeā€¦it WILL break your hand.

      It looked like she had a, "dang it, not again" face. But either way, glad she's ok.

      A long time ago, I crashed a car in the rain. Bald tires + plus speeding + rain just starting + road that coal trucks use = bad juju. Her apparent calmness doesn't surprise me. These sorts of situations often happen too quickly for you to panic. You see it happening, you try to stop it, you realize that you've lost control and boom, it's over.

        Agreed. It all goes by in a flash, your brain makes your body do what it needs to do, and you don't even think about it until later. The human mind really is amazing.
