Rolled the Focus
A deadwood tree went down across the entire road just over a steep hill outside of Gregory. Driving over the hill {at the speed limit} I had to slam the brakes and veer to hit the smaller branches. They twisted my car sideways and sent me over the side of the hill. I rolled one and a half times, and was left upside down suspended in my seatbellts. The Focus roof took a pretty good hit but held. As I was rolling I did a sit-up crunch to pull myself into a ball, I was able to bend my neck enough to not take too big of a hit to the head.I didn't smell any gas, but was reluctant to use any power widows. I was able to free myself and push open the passenger door above me.

Shook the glass out of my hair and I worked my way to the top of the hill to flag down anybody else approaching the trap. I do believe I may have saved the life of some Bikers on crotch rockets who were came up just a minute later. They would have been thrown all over the place.

I had just waxed and detailed my car

Lets see, the side's dented up, the glass is broken, but the side mirror is fine???? WTF!


Glad you're OK, and great move getting to the top to warn others! many would just stand there in "shell shock" looking at the mess instead of thinking of what to do next...

Cars can be replaced a whole lot easier than arms and legs.
Glad you didn't have the windows open with your arms flailing out.
Very good of you to go up to the road to warn the upcoming vehicles.

Glad you're okay, and that you had the presence of mind to get out of the wreck and warn others. You are a hero in my eyes. You are also blessed!
