Default Dzire toppled

Today a friends newly bought Dzire toppled. It was driven by his son, along with her sister and her small kids. All of them scaped unscratched. beleive me not even a single scratch. Just that the daughter fainted with shock. You can call it their good luck or swift's better built.
Everybody was praising the Dzire's robustness, but I was thinking the other way round. How can it topple on plain road as shown below?
any ideas people.?

SirAlec - Seeing the trail of broken parts & spilt fluid it looks like the DZire hit the rocky formations on the left & then toppled over. The broken grille is further proof.

its reassuring to see that the A pillar and the roof have not caved in and compromised the passenger compartment of the Dzire.

@SirAlec, why don't you ask your friend / his son what happened? That way we don't have to come up with our own stories and draw conclusions.
Before commenting on the driver / vehicle lets see what led to this Un-Dezired orientation.

from the 3rd and 4th picture it seems that, the car had hit a stone with high speed and might have got toppled. well the driver and watchers around has to put some light how did it happen

Something like that seems to be the only possibility.

It is also possible that the car mounted the stone wall on the side of the road, then toppled (sideways) and then the momentum of the car swung the tail around so that it was now pointing the direction from which it came from.

SirAlec can confirm whether the car hit the wall or the side of the mountain by asking which direction the car was travelling in when the accident occured. (same direction as its pointed = mountain; opposite direction = stone wall)

Either way, judging by the damage i dont think the driver was going too fast.

See this for a better understanding of how such a thing is possible:

Come on mate, don't tell me that you're going to turn this into a 10 page discussion? You know already don't you, so why not come out with it?

From the damage in the front it seems the vehicle hit something big on the right (notice the damage to the bumper and how it has caved in) and then fliped. Over speeding and control / judgement error!

The paint has not scraped off. So seems the car has not hit the rocks. Also the car would have toppled on its side had it hit on its side.

glad to know that the swift's flimsy build affects only the cosmetic parts and not the structural ones

naah yaar! the dude behind the recovery truck, the barefoot wala is the one. He says he can't recall a thing. All he knew was that there was a kid running on the road and he tried to save him and another second he toppled. Funny thing is that he never applied the brake, not a single skid marks on the road. I guess his left front tyre climbed the marked area of rock.
Say what?
