This Happened Sunday Night September 24.. about 10.45pm.. Raining pretty hard... going around a curve... it flew 14 ft through the air.. landed on a post on the roof then commenced to roll 5 times thereafter and came to a stop on its roof..

I was in the driverside.. hanging from my seatbelt.. i climbed through the busted passenger window... no one else was in the car thankfully.. i walked away with minor cuts and bruises and some vertabrae misaligned (very sore back)... i am very thankfull i lived through this

I think everyone should see this as a reminder that you ARE NOT immortal.. no matter how much you think you are...

Speeds around 50-60mph...

and yeah i went to the hospital... they strapped me to a body board after i told them i was fine just my back was sore.. took a million xrays to find that nothing was wrong. just i needed to see a chiropractor...

had some airbag dust in my eyes.. so they cleaned that out...

prolly will be a $3000 bill... that was unnecessary

Since you're alive, consider this event a blessing.

1. You didn't lose your head (pun intended).

2. You got a nifty lesson on physics.

3. You have a kick-arse story to tell!
