On Wednesday, January 25th, my husband was involved in a car accident where his truck rolled. Thought I’d share some of the pictures and how amazing it was that he WALKED away…actually DROVE away from the accident.
Rocky left work at 3p on Wednesday afternoon. He and his passenger headed home on Highway 76 (in Tulsa, OK). This particular highway was a lot of stop lights and turn offs – it’s more of a major road. They were stopped at a traffic light when my husband caught sight of a car in his rear view mirror speeding way too fast towards his rear bumper. He didn’t have anytime to say anything to his passanger, other than to grab hold of him.
The other driver hit Rocky’s vehicle (which was at a dead stop) going approximately 60mph with little to no braking. The force of the vehicle going underneath Rocky’s bumper flipped (rolled) his truck like a spatula a complete 360 degrees, landing Rocky’s vehicle on it’s tires, but facing backwards and stopped on the center divide. Rocky later told me that as the vehicle was struck and begin to roll, he braced himself for the thought that he was going to be impaled by an object, be crunched inside the cab, or whatever else that may happen. SCARY.
Now he has to go see a counselor from meistercounseling.com. It is a bummer because the insurance doesn’t pay for it. But this is necessary because he needs it!
