Default I KILLED MY GRAND PRIX

Yep, I lost control of hit trying to avoid hitting another vehicle on the highway that was going way to slow and had my cruise set, i swerved to the inside lane, when i did, it got squirrley on me, i lost control and hit the cab of the truck, it was like an 18 wheeler but a lil smaller, and when i did that, my car flipped and landed on its roof where i slid for about 100 to 150 feet. Talk about scary, all the people that stopped were expecting to have to pull a body outta the car, but i got right out, PRAISE THE LORD, and needless to say, its totalled, badly too. But on a good note, i already have my next car, the guy is holding it for me, it is a 1992 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi. So i am staying supercharged, just going back to a bonnie, and a lil older cause i am getting the car for a steal, im just so glad and so fortunate that i am around to see another good deal, GOD was most certainly with me today, and I so know that, I called my mom and she came to where i was, and i dont think i ever cried as hard as i did when i saw her, and had her there to comfort me, ill have pictures tomorrow when i go to get the rest of my stuff out.

A WORD TO THE WISE, YOU MIGHT THINK YOU ARE COOL AND ALL NOT WEARING YOUR SEATBELT, BUT THAT IS THE VERY THING THAT SAVED MY LIFE!!!!!! ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEATBELT, IT WAS PUT THERE FOR A REASON!!

Now ask MOM how she'* doing!!!! I am still shaking!!! Now is not the time to have stopped taking my valium!!!! I did the better part of 90 mph to get to him and I am so thankful that he is unharmed!!! My dad & I were going to the scene from 2 different directions and Dad was much closer but I beat him by 15-20 minutes.

I am sad to see the car be totalled (she was a beauty, for sure) but NOTHING is more beautiful than holding my child alive and unhurt!!!

I am counting my blessings. And I have heavily medicated myself so I will stop shaking.

no doubt. Glad to see your safe and sound tho. Pontiacs have a rep for keeping thier owners alive and relatively unhurt in the club.

I'm glad to hear that you're okay, and that mom found some drugs to calm herself down.

To hell with the car bro. It sacrificed itself for you and I hope the 92 SSEi treats you well.
