on my way to my chassis guys house i gently attempted to pass a car without engaging the passing gear. it was misting but not enough water on the asphalt to hydroplane, this acted more like black ice only it wasn't freezing. the rear wheels began to spin and i let off the gas to let it correct itself. well, it didn't. instead it slid me off the opposite side of the road, straight at a concrete tunnel/dirt culvert. i hit the dirt launched my truck 15-20 feet in the air twisted sideways and then hit on my side and rolled 3-4 times. all this without a seatbelt. reason i took it off, it was hurting my surgery incision something bad. my wife, the EMT's , the trooper, and the firemen all agreed that if i would have kept it on i would be dead. i myself broke the console both in the seat and overhead with my body, ripped the dash apart and busted out the passenger side back glass with my body and i crawled out of the backseat and stood up and opened the drivers door(landed on passenger side and actually waited to get necked and boarded. bad bad pain right now, it did not screw up my back surgery, 10 staples in my head and various other knots and scratches no concussion, sore like all get the phuck out.
i scared my wife, kids, mom and brother, inlaws and best friends like they have never been scared in their entire life. came close to leaving my beautiful and three kids and never want to do that again. anyone know where i can buy a good used armored car with a funny car cage for myself, wife and three kids?

Glad you made it out alive, I was in a simular wreck many years ago, you learn to appreciate life a little better after stuff like this happens.

I was trapped in a car for what felt like hours was actually around 30 mins.

Give your family a hug even if it hurts. the pain reminds you that you're alive.

my wife has a picture that she took, didn't post it. it was real personal. HE was smiling on me and it shows in the picture, only GOD saw me through this and there were hugs and kisses aplenty when i got home.
my wife gave me a severe warning: if you do that to me again i'll kill you!!!

ok gotta ask, y was every one saying you would be dead if you had seatbelt on? Cab looks pretty intact so its not like you were in danger of being crushed in there?

I was wondering that too. I mean, fate it fate. But I hear this after some accidents. Either the seatbelt saved their life, or it would have killed them if they were wearing it. Glad you are ok though. Tough deal after back surgery.
