Stolen safe lost during u-turn

Two men who stole a safe from a store in Australia and tied it to their car lost it trying to do a u-turn, according to this report:

About 2am, the offenders kicked in the windows of the Coffee Club in the Home Centre on Springwood and dragged a hefty safe out of the store.
Police believe they used ropes to hook the safe up to their vehicle and then drove off, dragging the safe behind them.
But the plans came unstuck when the car performed a u-turn and the safe "flicked" into a culvert.
