My Car Crash

Post by Dacksoldier » Wed Aug 29, 2007 3:59 am

this happened last Sunday

I was speeding around my area in my car and i was going down a hill with another road at the bottom which there was a curve connecting the other toad and in the median area was just gravel

I was going about 70 mph when i turned onto the curve and lost traction and slid sideways thru the gravel and when i hit the road it bent my rear tire under the car and it ground out a gash across the road and then the car did a 180 + flipped and landed on the drivers side facing the opposite way and then continued rolling into the ditch and ended up on the passenger side.

I walked out of the car unhurt and my passenger wasn't hurt either. I had owned this car for only 2 weeks about. The car was a 1999 Saab 9-3 SE

sorry to hear about that. please post smaller images, though, scrolling around a picture to get the gist of it is a real bitch.
hope you get a new one soon.

Damn.. bad luck...
Slow down next time when you take a curve. Thats why there is a brake you know. There are so much traffic accidents in my country lately that i have zero tolerance about this.
Lucky you didn't crash someone else's car too.

Dont "wish" to be more responsible, just be! Think about that: You risked your life for one of the most volatile things, speed. You are lucky that your not in a wheel-chair, paralysed under the neck and wanting to end your suffering by taking your life, but cant because you cant even lift a finger. How miserable is that?

Of course thats a worse case scenario, but it happens all the time.

Good luck with finding a new car and affordable insurance lol :P
