Coming on the interstate to my mom's house, I hit the shoulder beside the 'getty up and go' lane and the car went out of control in the wet conditions. I just couldnt get it back in control although I tried, because the steering I guess is too lose and the next thing I knew, it had slid sideways and hit another car. It then proceeds to skid across the road. When it hit the other shoulder, it rolled over on its side.

My dog few from the passengers side and hit the driver's window since it was now on its side.He did not get hurt but I think the worse thing was when they took him away to the pound for holding until I got out from the hospital.

I was wearing a seatbelt. Finally I was released from the hospital with no scratches, bruises and broken bones.The doctor was surprised. He said if I was not wearing th belt, I would have been mangled badly.

My son was great. He took care of everything.

I was driving the Taurus. ww said it I was in my subaru I would be dead. With the much tighter steering on the subaru and all wheel drive, I said, this would not have happened.

Anyway back at my mons house with all of my stuff that was towed and my little dog.

I am sure many visits to the chiroprator will be in order, as things are kind of stiff.

Sorry if this is boring but nothing like this has ever happened to me because I am a very careful driver

The good part, I might be stuck in Roanoke for awile for car repairs, where pool room fees are about $3 per hour. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Car related accidents and injuries are not fun. I know firsthand about that. Glad to hear you and your dog are safe and sound now.

I don't see any mention of what happened to the other innocent driver you smashed into. Just a lot of circular logic, in an attempt to not accept any responsibility for the accident.

I think the other driver would disagree as to what happened to your dog as being the worst part of the accident. Sorry for my lack sympathy, (could be because it is late and the fact my wife was run down by a hit and run driver), I would just like you to take some responsibility for your causing an accident and the problems you caused another innocent person. Guess I am just tired of people and their excuses for every G.D. thing they do.

BW, glad to hear you ar okay and not badly hurt. Do you know if the occupants of the other vehicle were okay? Like Popcorn said, they are important too.

In the short time you have been here at the CCB, you have:

<ul type="square"> Bluewolf's Adventures

Fought sickness and diseases
Battled ridicule
Left, returned and left again
Queried about skid, deflection, english, break speed, break cues, cue cases, legal cases, cases of the flu, flu-like symptoms, symptoms of dimensia and what chalk to use
Good pool lessons and bad pool lessons
Returned, left and returned again
Wrecked your car
Wrecked someone else's car
Tried to kill your dog

It makes Christopher Columbus' search for the Americas seem boring and pale in comparison.

Glad you're okay. Stay away from Texas.

Glad your OK Laura, sorry to hear it happened. You'll probably have some aches for a while, that soft tissue stuff is slow to heal.

(Just joking around--I'm glad that it wasn't worse that what it was, and I hope the other people made out okay.)

Glad you are alright.

Have you found out any information on the other victims? I pray they made it out alright also.

Help arrived in 5 minutes or sooner it seems.First thing out of my mouth was was the other driver okay. They said he was and the state police gave me all their into at the hospital so we could turn it into the ins.

It was after they took my dog out of the car and away from me and even worse when I knew where they were taking him, I was even more upset. I know that place well and it is not nice.

If that had cause another person to be injured very bad, I probably would never be able to forgive myself.

Hit and run, you say popcorn, beyond my comprehension how someone could do something like that.

I was in a state of shock here when I wrote here last night and did not say all of the details and still hadnt.

It's pretty obvious that she was conducting further research on swerve, deflection, and brake speed.....dimensia??

Glad to hear you and your dog are okay.

I wrecked my Audi - back in January - talking on my cell phone to my boss and telling him I was going to be late for work. The last thing he heard was the screeching of the brakes.... and then the phone went dead...Luckily I was okay, and the people I hit were okay. It was so embarrassing, and I was so lucky. I got 2 tickets, and I was able to take defensive driving but my insurance went thru the roof anyway.

Take care of yourself

Extremely glad to hear your O.K. Laura, last summer I did something similar in my truck (rolled it on it's side) and know how scary something like that can be, from a positive standpoint it gives you a deeper appreciation for life.

By the way, $3 per hour, damn girl go shoot some pool!

Thanks Debra. I thought that if a person wrecked at 60 miles an hour they were dead, period. I guess I was pretty lucky and I am very glad the other person was not hurt. That is the worst possible thing when you drive stupid, if you hurt somebody else.I got a ticket too and have to go to court to see what the judge will decide.

Thanks to everyone else who wrote and to rackumup for a very good laugh. I am in my home town until ww can pick me up on saturday so getting to see a few friends too.

You guys and gals are really great.

This is what happens when you use outside english when making an inside turn!

Let's see, WET conditions but you're going 60 anyway. The steering YOU GUESS is too loose and the car WENT out of control. Well that darned car! At least you realize it wasn't anything that you did wrong that contributed to this latest catastrophe. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Rip~~ just travelin' down Highway 3.14 shakin' my head in total amazement....oh yeah, glad you're okay. Wait a minute, I don't really mean you're okay...I meant to say "glad you weren't injured" /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
