HOLY S***!!!!!!

The roof came down in front of the seats........I take it you hit the passenger seat in the heat of it all.

I've seen some people walk away from some crazy wrecks.....but when the roof comes down to the seats....it only takes one sec to snap your neck.

You are lucky!!!!

At least your ok man, trucks can be replaced lives can't

I also noticed you have Continental Tires, yuck I had those and for replacement tires they really sucked.

Once again at least you walked away from it man.

Even if you feel ok go to a doctor and get looked at. In a accident that bad you never know. I went to school with somebody that was in a bad accident flipped his cougar twice and he went to the doctors and they said he was fine, he died a week later from something strange (its been about 8 years I didn't really know him too well I can't remember what he actually died from). He complained of headacks but other then that he felt fine.

...internal hemoraging of the brain. The sac fills up surrounding the brain and the pressure gets to be too much. If not drained (much less caught) it can easily prove fatal.

That'd be my guess.

well i can't say that i've wanted to go to the doctor but i am scheduled to go just incase. i can't say that i've had much pain other than some soreness in the chest and in my lower back. i expect my head will be alright. thankfully instead of pushing straight forward down on my head when the roof collapsed, it forced my head forward towards the steering wheel and down. i was just lucky that the airbags didn't go off. if they had my head probably would have been crushed.
