Ok Brad...

How'd it happen? Were you wearing your crash helmet? Seatbelt?

Were you driving? Anyone else in the car??










Level with us.. It was the squirrels, right?

here's some more pics. I was the passenger in this wreck. Riding with a friend down a nice windy road. He lost it and the van did a U and went into the tree. We were doing somewhere around 70...Lady who saw it though we were a four wheeler.

I had my seat belt on, just came out from underneath it when my seat broke in half. The driver was bruised up from where I landed on top of him.

Yeh i almost didn't. Blood pressure was 40/0 when they got me in the ambulance. I was airlifted to the big hospital in the state here. I don't remember anything from that day till about a week afterwards. The only thing I remember is my dad said I didn't owe any more money on my car :D . So it turned out ok in the end. Me and the driver are still really good friends, I'm not mad at him or anything, it's all good

Fishers Stang, They didn't have to cut me out thank god. The van turned itself back around facing the road as you can see from the pictures, basically a 360 gone wrong. I've grown up around the fire dept and rescue and now am on it myself. I know what you mean by cuttin out, I've done my fair share of it.
And yeh I know I'm lucky, that's the only way I made it through. I was in God's hands and am not scared to say it. I need to get the pic of me and the driver at the van about 4 months later when i was on crutches and out of the wheelchair a little bit. I need to find it...
But thanks guys, figured some of you could appreciate this.

For those that don't know, I was the passenger in that wreck. 70 mph versus tree backwards. I remember 2 things from earlier in that day, but for a week before and 2 weeks after I remember nothing short of going by the junkyard that morning and eating lunch at a mexican restaurant for lunch.
