I did it again...Someone up there loves me

Some of you may remember my accident a few months ago where i was run over by my rig while working on it. We'll, i ended up in the hospital again yesterday. I was with a friend on our way to move hay into the barns before the rain moved in and i was going too fast around the curve....my buddy was wearing his seat belt but i was not. The truck rolled 3 times, and i was ejected through the drivers side window after the first roll. I ended up appx. 60+ ft from the truck..... My buddy is sore but is fine. I dislocated my knee and have a few cuts and bruises but am fine otherwise.

Just as with my last accident, I hope this serves a reminder to not be a [email protected]$$ like me and wear the safety belts...i probly would be walking around right now instead of being stuck in a chair so sore i cant stand up lol. Im a blessed man for sure.



You can see where i went into the little ditch sideways....



You can see where the grass is tore up from where the truck landed and came to a stop. My mom is out in the field where i landed after going out the window. Scary when you think about how far i flew through the air.

Seriously hurt*

And I'd imagine so. Hitting water at 40 isn't much fun. I can't imagine dirt...

Glad you're alright Rob. I saw the title and thought, no way, he didn't get hurt again, but you did! I never used to wear my seat belt. I was stupid when young and wrecked a car and if I would have had it on, I would have been trapped inside and dead. I hesitantly wear it now, my van got me used to it with its "reminder" to wear it.

What's them axles out of? They could make good parts for a truck project...

Wow Rob, glad you're ok.

I hear that argument a lot about wearing seat belts. What would have happened in a crash differently is mostly theory. The statistics don't lie. You greatly increase your chance of survival in an accident by wearing your belt.

Geez man! Glad you're okay, but let's not push your luck alright!?

And I will be one more to add to the sentiment that the statistics don't lie. Seat Belts save lives...

I'd say you need to slow down and take things easy little buddy. Next time you probably won't be so lucky...

Glad to hear you're mostly OK. Keep your head screwed on straight!
