Yeah it just happend the other day. I was the highway and right when I exited going about 35-40 and the car when crazy flew off a 20 foot hill and rolled a couple of times. At the end th cars was up-side-down and I crawled out the passager side window. I was ok except for a cut on the knee and a bump on the head. I almost cried looking at my IS. The cop said that it was a good thing I had my seat belt on and I was in a safe car or else I'd be dead. The IS is not a very good Minnesota car, but I'm still going to try to get another one in spring, because the IS is the shitez.

PS
Buckle up...It does save lives.

Sorry to hear that, man. I'm glad that you're okay.

But what exactly happened? Which HWY you were on? Any snow/ice on the road? Did your IS use snow tires?

Yeah it was on 12-4-02 right after it snowed. I was on 494 going North and I exited a new exit called Tamrack. I had winter tires on to but they were no help when I was fishtailing.

Damn, I was there couple days ago for the first time(not snowed yet), but opposite direction(from 94 east to 494 south). Lucky me.

I felt that the new exit is not having enough light on the road... And thought it might be safe to drive 35~40mph with snow tires on.

BTW, how's your IS? Hope it's fine.

Sorry to hear about your IS. But it did its best effort to protect you, though at the cost of itself... :(

Hope your insurance company takes good care of this accident.

You can always get a new car or get one fixed and that won't cost anywhere near the medical bills you could have had if you were injured. Glad to hear you are OK.
