flipped my truck

so like the post says i flipped it...

i was driving on a 4 lane hiway in calgary canada and i looked up to the road (i was watching my gecko crawl up my shirt) and there was a ton of stopped cars so i slammed on the breaks and hit teh guard rail and cuz of my lift and tires the tires clibmed the 2 foot guard rail and down she went going about 85 kilometers an hour and hit some other guy with the bed of my truck

so 2 fire trucks 2 cop cars and 2 abluances showed up

and i wasnt even wearing a seatbelt (call me stupid i know) i was putting in new seats and i just didnt bother to put in seatbelts when i put the old seats back on cuz in a day i would be putting in the new ones..

so teh body damage in minor (god was on my side) and ill have my truck back from getting un - hydrolocked from beeing on its side by later tongiht so the new seats get on later this week and deffanetly getting a roll cage !!!!

years back we did that to a maverick.. felt like the gopher in caddyshack when i rolled down the passenger window and stuck my head up to climb out lol back then no cut offs so we rolled it over on four wheels had it towed off the highway set fluids into it ( it was a manual trans) and kicked out the windshield lol and drove it home ( late at night when the cops werent around)

OK, so I guess I'll take some heat with this, but................ how are you not embarrassed to even post this? You were not paying attention while driving and you had no seatbelts. You could have killed innocent people by your actions, however you almost sound like you're proud. I'd be mortified to post something publicly that showed how stupid and reckless I was.

I hope no one give you heat for what everyone is thinking but not saying......



But as for the original post...
Things could have turned out really really bad. You could have been killed, killed other people, and caused a lot of damage to other vehicles......all because you were not in control of your vehicle and not paying attention. Then people wonder why they pay high insurance rates....well here's a contributer to that figure.

Unreal, next time this happens to ANYONE, please keep it to yourself or just lie about it. Sharing a story like this is just an argument waiting to happen.
