Police have now released dashcam footage of the overturning car in 2016 with the hope it can warn others of the dangers.

The campaign targets new and learner drivers in schools and colleges around the county between the ages of 17 and 24.

This age group is most at risk of being involved in a serious car crash.

So far, the video has been seen by around 10,000 students.
