Well, Rangers take rollovers well...and so do Ranger1's!

Ben called me the night it happened, but I waited to let him decide when/if to post about it. It bugs me sometimes that something happens to someone and bunches of people are all talking about it before they even say something, lol.

Glad to hear you're STILL alright, Ben. I'm so paranoid about that "you don't know you're hurt until days later" thing after it happened to me when I wrecked my first Ranger.

Well, insurance company should be out soon. Guess we'll wait for news and hear what you're thinking of doing.

Blessings, Brother!

WOW BEN!!!
Most all all glad you are OK.
Make sure you get a complete check up.
Back and neck injuries can be subtle but nagging if not treated.

Once more... I am glad you are OK friend.

Damn that looks alot worse than I had pictured it. As I said before, glad you're ok, and I hope the doctor, or the insurance has nothing bad to say. As always, let me know if there's anything I can do to help you out.

Thank goodness you are alright man! I hope everything works out for you!

I'll help by taking that RCD lift if you get the truck back.

Get better soon, and I say we have a nation-wide RF man hunt for the guy that cut in front of you.

According to Ben, no one cut in front of him. The car in front stopped and he crashed. It is the responsibility of the driver behind to leave enough room to stop safely.

Sorry to hear about that Ben. I'm glad that your not hurt that bad, but I hate to see your truck like that.

When I head down that way in the summer I hope to see both of you back in action in!

Wow man, I am really sorry to hear that.

It's scary, it almost looks how victors did, except victors was WAY worse. Your truck seems like it could easily be fixed. Especially if it was running, vic's wasn't able to crank over (probably fuel cut off) after he flipped...that was a crazy night.

Thats scary man, I hope everything works out for you. I'm sorry about the whole situation.

What happened to the other car?
Thats what I was kind of hoping for. I was hoping they would just total it out and not come look at it but a guy is coming to tkae a look tomorrow morning.

I never hit the other car, when I got out of the truck the light was green and there was nobody at the intersection. They just drove off, didn't even stop to see if I was ok.

What had happend was the light went yellow and the car infront of me accelerated like he was going to run the light or at least just barely make it on yellow. At the last minute the light goes red he slammed on the brakes and skidded to a stop in the middle of the intersection. If he had run the light or made it on yellow I would have had plenty of room to stop. Since it looked like he was going though I sort of thought I could have made it too at first then I was going to just stop then he stopped all of a sudden and well I ended up rollin over. The roads were slightly damp from the rain friday night. I am not really mad at the other car and I do NOT think it was their fault, but they could have at least stopped and checked on me.

they may have never saw you roll......if they wasn't looking back then they very well could've never known it happened.......maybe that is why they continued on....
