Those rollovers can be scary as hell. I was in one a long time ago (early 2000s), and we managed to make it out without serious harm. We ended up resting upside down though.

It was interesting, like slow motion. They say if you have an accident you should try to relax because you get hurt worse if you tighten all of your muscles........As soon as I was hit I relaxed. I chipped a tooth and have herniated discs in my neck. Could have been worse. When I got out some lady ran over to the car and said " Girl, I thought you were dead".

Yep, I remember the slow motion thing. That was freaky. The relaxing thing is true too. That is why when a drunk person wrecks their car, they are likely to survive. Their body is already relaxed, so the crash is not near as bad as it should be for them.

I went through the guard rail on an old wooden bridge the truck landed upside down on the rail road tracks some 40 feet below. As you said it was like slow motion as if time had actually slowed down. I always felt like the hand of God took hold and let it down gently. I walked away without a scratch, but I was a little sore the next day. I wasn't the one driving, and he did not know the road like I did and he ignored my yelling for him to slow down. It was an old wooden bridge that the road made a 90 degree turn at both ends. He didn't walk away but he did survive. This was in a big Coca-Cola route truck.

Least you had plenty to drink while you waited for emergency services....lol jk.

I've never rolled anything, other than my atv. But my little brother rolled his Ford Taurus a couple years ago and my brother in law ran a stop sign and clipped a car, truck (91 F150) ended up on its driver side.

I once witnessed a tractor trailer rollover on the interstate in front of me, driver came down the ramp at nearly 50 mph on a ramp with a speed limit of 25 mph.

A few pics of our two day trip to the Helvetinjärvi and Seitseminen national parks. Did a short hike and some rappelling at Helvetinjärvi and spent the night at Seitseminen. I'll post more pics and possibly a video when my friends get theirs uploaded. Took these with my phone so the quality isn't too good.
