Crashed my Jeep into a tree :(

We had a very slippery and muddy Sunday last week.

We were driving down a little hill, gaining little bit too much speed. After some point the Jeep started to slide to the right. At this point I lost all steering control and just tried to slow down the vehicle.

Unfortunately it was not enough to prevent the Jeep from going over the bank . And to make it even worse, a huge hole to our right appeared, where we were exactly sliding to. As soon we started to drop into the hole, I turned hard right and accelerated to prevent from rolling.

Well learned from the mistake, fortunately not the hardest way, almost rolled :/

We had our Action Cam running, here is the video.

Yet another reason to hate mud.

It's fast forward in the beginning, but before the hole where you hear talking it was original speed. I was going a bit too fast for the road conditions. That was my mistake

Passenger side mirrors are GREATLY overrated...

Nice little battle scar on the bumper - not too shabby, all things considered. That said, I'm sure a genuine JEEP dealer would ONLY charge you $7,239,617,823,408,957 to re-attach the mirror for you.
