Russia isn't well-known for its high safety standards, so it's unsurprising to see local authorities cutting corners on road repairs. With this in mind, a second-generation Land Rover Freelander II fell into what seems like an exposed manhole, which was partially covered by a metal mesh frame, in the Russian resort city of Sochi. It caused the compact SUV to flip over but thankfully, the driver was able to escaped thanks to passers-by.
Lets just hope that local authorities can sort out teething problems before the 2014 Olympics Winter Games, although we wouldn't hold our breath. Video's after the jump!
