Default 2002 Ranger Edge meet its doom on 1-9-11

I started my day just like any other sunday, woke up, got ready for work, but on my way into town, just a few miles down the road from home, my day was turned around.
I was comming over a hill, when a driver going the other direction was in my lane. After that I dont remember a thing, but what had happend was I had dropped the passenger side tires into to ditch to avoid him, but when doing this at 60 mph it doesnt work out so well. The Rangers rear end swung out launching me across the road in the opposite direction. When i reached the ditch I had only gotten half way down the side of it when the tires dug in causing the truck to roll, after some more rolls, flips, spins, and possibly an end over end, the truck came to rest in a small creek on its side about 150 yards from where I had tried to avoid the other driver.
When I had waken up from being knocked out, the other driver had came back to make sure i was ok, and was all ready at my truck. I just kinda sat there for a moment looking around, after answering his calls, trying to figure out how I had gotten down there.
The police officer that came to deal with it said that if i had been in any other vehicle i would have been most likely dead, and that i was lucky i wasnt seriously injured. I walked out of that accident with just a small scratch on my leg, and a stiff neck and back. Im still thanking god and who ever was watching over me that day.

Holy crap! Good to hear your ok man.. Can't trust any drivers anymore. Was there a reason he was in you lane or was he just there? Also do you have plans for another ranger? I know if an officer said my truck was the reason I lived I'd be in It for the rest of my life hah! But good to hear your ok man

Thank you, but out here where I live, some people just drive in the middle of the road for some reason, and it probably dont help that we dont have the best roads either. But right now I currently own a 2001 mercury sable, its nice, for a car. Another Ranger is deffinatly going to be in the future though, but just not exactly like that one.

----------

Magnus, she is totaled, i have pics up of it.

Glad you're OK after that! Hate to hear about the truck.

Just lost a coworker last Sunday. Fell asleep around 3:00 AM on his way home and ran his 2004 FX4 off the road, through a fence and over an embankment. He wasn't wearing his seat belt. As was ejected from his truck.
