Both were checked over by paramedics at the scene, but luckily neither required hospital treatment.

Speaking to the Herald afterwards, passenger Steven said: “The speed limit was 60mph but he [Sam] was doing about 50 and he has misread the corner and gone too quick.

“The car has rolled a few times, smashed head on into a tree and we bounced off the tree and rolled again.”

The Volkswagen eventually came to a rest on its side.

“We both climbed out safely and I flagged someone down,” said Steven. “They helped, called 999 and stayed with us, which was very much appreciated.

“I cleared the road while my friend was shaking and couldn’t move, but all he had was a swollen thumb and a few bruises.

“I have burnt marks on my face which I guess was from the air bag, and a black eye which was from the car rolling around.”

Confirming both of the lads were now fine, Stephen even went to work today.

The road was partially blocked for around an hour between 6pm and 7pm. No other vehicles were involved.
