on Tuesday Dec 6th, I was driving home from work at 9:30pm when I was cut off by another car on the highway... no big deal usually, however, this happened right as i was about to drive over black ice. I don't remeber much else at this point. I do know that i hit a guardrail at highway speeds, went airborne, and flipped over a number of times. i was told by parmedics that i would have been dead had i not been wearing my seatbelt. i suffered a fractured shoulder, a broken arm, a fractured wrist, a smashed finger and thumb, a severe concusion, a deep puncture wound to my chest, and road rash all over my face and head. They actually released me from the hospital last night, with the exception that i go back for a few surgeries (they felt i'd be more comfortable at home). Looks like i won't be at work for quite a while... thank god i have disability insurance!!! anyway, my family might be going to see my car this weekend at the salvage yard to collect some belongings. they'll take some pics and I'll post them here so you all can see my ordeal.

yea, no joke... same thing has happened to my cousin in his tacoma, flipped about 4 or 5 times while flying over 25 feet from the road to where he landed, hitting a tree (the reason they know he was airborne was that the snow wasnt disturbed btwn the edge of the road and where his truck landed). once he was concious and able to move, he was taller than his truck when they stood it on its nose to get it towed away...

black ice is teh suck

Screw the car, man. ... Just happy to hear that you were able to come out alive. Cars can be replaced.
^ Definitely!

I'm really sorry to hear it, man. You've been a great member for quite some time, and I hope you'll continue to post here. I hope you feel better, man, and I'm happy to hear the tC kept you alive.

sorry about your accident. i think your accident was the worst ive read from all the threads that were posted here. i still cant imagine how the tc held up roliing w/ pretty much glass roof. just shows how good the tc was built.

A good portion of Scion owners are Gen-Y'ers like us. We tend to group together like this or get online and pass each other the news. If there was a fatality in a tC, someone would probably see/hear about it and inform us.
