Ben Neufeld described his wife as "calm as a cucumber" after their car flipped onto its side outside the couple's Bel-Air home, leaving her trapped in the driver's seat and providing a photo opportunity for the unflappable pair.
The pictures show the woman still inside the blue Honda, which rolled onto its driver's side door Friday after apparently striking a high curb on Linda Flora Drive. Her husband, who was inside their home when he heard what he said sounded like someone moving garbage can, is pictured outside the car holding her purse. The car was "barely moving" when it apparently rolled after striking high curbing on the tree-lined street, Neufeld said. Another neighbor opened the passenger's side door, making it easier for Neufeld's wife to speak with her husband. "I'm sure it never occurred to her to take a picture of herself in what must have been an embarassing position," he said.
