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.

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.
