3 people in the jeep. 2 got flown from the scene. 1 was critical for 2 weeks but has made a remarkable recovery after having half his insides removed

That's as big as i can get it. I will search it out again to find it bigger. It was wrapped around a utility pole after collision with a utility truck around 130 am in the morning on a back country road. Speed and Alcohol were a factor.

This was an accident my Dad was involved in last year. . . He was "t-boned" by a Volvo Semi that made an illegal left turn from the center lane of a 3 lane (one way) road. . . Here's the aftermath. He was forced off the road and into a telephone pole, which broke in 2 places upon being hit. Semi driver received a citation, my dad received the bill for the telephone pole replacement. . .

That is some bull****, I hope he didn't actually have to pay for the telephone pole.

This last July 5th my son borrowed my TJ to go to work at Bonanza... He got off work around 10PM and the kids usually hang out in the parking lot after the resturaunt closes. Well, you know what happens when kids get together...pretty soon the guys were trying to see who could make the fastest lap around the parking lot.



My club was in the 4th of July parade the day before so the top was off, the doors were off and the dingbat wasn't wearing a seatbelt... He went around a corner too fast, got it up on two wheels, overcurrected and when it came down it made an abrupt left turn which flipped the Jeep, threw him out on his noggin and landed on it's wheels. Thankfully the kid and the Jeep went different directions when they departed company.

He was in a drug induced coma for over a week, had three chest tubes to drain his lungs, was intebated with a reperator... Fractured skull, eight broken ribs, collapsed lung... Forgot to mention the dislocated collar bone that will remain a big ugly lump for the rest of his life...



Don't drive your Jeep (or your Dad's Jeep) like it's a sports car and...

WEAR YOUR SEATBELT!!

My son has made a full recovery, thank God. And I have since been re-Jeeped.

He had liability insurance on the vehicle, and the trucking company didn't want to pay for the damages until they were served with a lawsuit. . . They covered the cost of the telephone pole (over $3k), towing, the tort claim for the damages ($500), and the court costs.

Dang muskyslayr, I was wondering what happened to your Jeep. That is good to hear that your son has recovered, sounds like it was horrible.

This happened where I live just a couple of days ago.



The guy driving the car was hit by a log truck as it changed lanes, crossed the median, and was hit by the truck you see in the pic, AND HE LIVED!!!! The log truck driver that hit him never stopped and is being sought by local and state police.
