However, your car is not so lucky.

Whoa!

I have been through a couple of similar incidents. Isn't rolling and flying through the air trippy as hell? Really gets the adrenaline flowing.

Glad you're ok.

Sorry you had to go through that to get there but glad you see it now. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow.

Make the most of today.

didn't you have a post a number of months back about being depressed about life with no direction/vision/passion?

let this be your catalyst for something great.

It had been raining all day and as I came around a curve I lost control of my car. It flipped off an embankment and ended up upside down in the woods. My car avoided a creek and all the trees. I recall everything. Losing control, flipping, etc. I had my seat belt on so I didn't really move a lot. I sustained a deep laceration on my right wrist, but that is all.

What makes me feel indifferent is in this particular spot several people have died. Most recently two months ago someone died supposedly 10 feet from where my car rested. I'm able to crawl out and walk away under my own power, yet others never got that opportunity.. it makes me feel bad.

I didn't see this coming at all. It was just a normal day, coming home from school. Be careful out there and don't think you are ever going too slow for those curves when it is raining. Drive safe and always let your loved ones know you love 'em.

Yes. I've been through a lot in the last 10 months. Although I believe I'm the right track these days this event certainly makes me feel more appreciative for everything that I have. I mean I'm just flat out happy to be alive.

I think a lot of things went right for me to walk away and one of those is the car. I really think the size and build of the car really took the hit for me.

Glad to see you are OK.

That said, remember folks, putting off buying tires for "one more month" can sometimes have really bad results.

When I was in college and didn't have enough money for tires I let it go a bit too long. It was raining, and I was going under the speed limit, but a very similar situation to beckersteen's happened to me.

I had replaced my tires a month ago. Nonetheless you are very much right. Just gotta take it slow on those hilly/curvey roads.

Glad you are okay.

The rest of everyone's life is a free gift, honestly. Some just appreciate it more than others.


Yes, glad you are ok. A good reminder for us all. Sorry for what you had to go through for this lesson....but...it is one of those things that could be the best thing that ever happened.

I hope it is a positive thing for you. Sounds like you are taking it that way.
