The front wheel climbed up the gate and flipped the car.

Ouch ouch !!! That must have hurt .. The rod like thing hanging at the lower part of the gate was clipped by the front right wheel .. And the gate is also not stable from the looks of it .. Apart from the damages to the car , i guess the bump on the head on hitting the roof would have hurt and yes the bruised and battered ego ..

looks like the steering locked up, and panic caused the sudden acceleration.

I think the lady hit the base of the gate so hard that it bent and flipped the car over.

Not everyone is capable of doing that.Kudos to the lady .
Did someone notice the guy who opened the gates walk off when he saw the car coming towards the gate. Am sure the dude also would have anticipated the disaster.LOL.

Thats hilarious. It seemed like a stick shift car. The best part was the lady, straightening herself out, picking up her bag and walking straight.
