the car while it was still upside down and decided that as the music was
still playing in the car, jumped on the under carriage of the car and
started dancing like crazy in the middle of the road around and on top
of the car and waited for the police to arrive. It was strange to me as
I thought in a serious situation like this if it was me, I would have
probably run.
