Son totals his car

We were very lucky he was not hurt at all. he fell asleep,ran off the road and hit a big oak tree and fliped it . After I got the call it was not good to walk up and see his car.air bag and seat belt saved him.doesent remember anything but crawling out the window and looking at his car ..dam lucky.

Wow, that would be scary! I'm sorry about the wreck and his car, but of course glad to hear he's okay.

Nice NRA sticker on it, tho'.

Think he'll stay awake next time?

Good to hear he's ok, but it's not the trees fault, poor tree

Does anyone care about the tree!?!

Wow. Glad he was okay especially since the tree hit on the driver's side. Hitting trees usually cause pretty serious injury or death.

Wow and here I was thinking Toyotas were safe...
Glad your son is ok! Too bad the car wasn't up to the task of protecting him like it should have been.

Seeing as how he's fine, I think the car did a pretty good job of protecting him.

I'm not serious

I'm just not hung up on how 'bad' it could have been, his son is still alive, we should all celebrate and get that car running and driveable so he can use it in cash for clunkers, haha

It's totally unacceptable for the roof to buckle like it did. That accident was very close to being much worse.

It's sad. More and more young ones crash because of falling asleep at the wheel. Glad he's alright.

Well the tree should not have been standing there in the first place, every think about that? Glad to hear he is safe, im not sure how people fall asleep when driving, i always love drving and have the music up loud so it would be very hard for me to do that.
