Unhappy TOTALED my Focus on Saturday

I just want to let everybody know that there is one less 2000 Pitch Black 5-Speed ZTS Focus driving around. I pretty much totaled it Saturday afternoon.

I was coming from the gun range on Saturday, and I took the long way around, cause' I wanted to show my brother's friend the newly paved section of twisty back road. We got through that fine, but there was another turn after those. I took the blind turn at about 45-55mph, and just as I got to the apex of the turn (I took the turn rally style--I was pretty much using the whole road for myself) I saw the beat up POS blue van coming at me.....I jerked right, then left and as I steered left, my right rear tire caught the loose gravel on the side of the road. The car quickly slid sideways, across the road, and into the embankment. I was stopped mostly by the 2ft long by 1ft wide by 1ft thick small boulder on the side of the road. I landed about 4ft away from a telephone pole. Both airbags deployed, and the passenger side bags' cover smashed the windshield.

As soon as it happened, I jumped from the car and ran about 150ft up a hill, hoping it was a dream. It wasn't. I did a STUPID!!! This was the most irresponsible and careless thing I have EVER done, and I will be paying for It for a LONG time. This post will hopefully slow some of you guys (and girls) down.

I am only 20 (21 in March, so much for my 21st birthday!) and I have NO car, or pride left. My brother's friend was okay, and so was I, but my BABY is dead.

P.S.- If anybody is looking for a NEW (as of Christmas) Volant Cold Air Intake, or SVT E-Brake, and Le-Bra Car Bra (Haven't used this in awhile), Email me @ HaveBlue83@aol.com Thanks

btw...It was only my brothers friend and I in the car at the time. My brothers friend was okay--he and the onlookers that gathered were worried about me--I was practically Senile because I wrecked my baby I was flipping out like crazy. I am disgusted with myself for doing something this stupid.

Well , First were all glad you are alright. Second, It is time to start ebaying for a salvaged title focus and begin again. The only to feel better is to get right back in the saddle and remember what you learned for the next time.

Oh, I drive cars as my job, so it's not like I won't be driving for awhile. ( I'm a valet at Mercedes -Benz, but I am REAL carefull with the customer's cars) I just hope I don't lose my job considering what I did and how careless it was. Hopefully they will understand all of this- I told them what happened today.
