    So, a couple of weeks ago I was taking some friends home after celebrating a friends 21st birthday ( I was the designated driver). Right after I dropped the last one off, I looked down at my phone. I looked up to see that I was running straight off of a curve. I overcorrected, and the vehicle rolled several times. My back driver's door hit a pole or a tree or something, and was smashed in to the point it was touching my back seat. Needless to say, my vehicle was totaled. Amazingly, I escaped without injury other than a concussion from my head hitting the window. I was later told that if whatever hit the back door would have hit the driver's door, I would have been killed on impact. I consider myself extremely lucky, and no longer use my phone while driving!

    And sorry for the quality of the first 3 pics........ My camera was in my truck when I went to get my stuff out and the lens was fogged up.

    Nasty crash, Im glad you didnt get hurt any worse than you did. Should be a lesson to others about using that phone while driving. I have to admit that damn phone costs me a crash also.

    I wanted to get my wheels/tires & screen out of it also..... I planned to buy some cheap rims/tires from another wrecked one and put them on mine, and just put the factory radio back in. However, when I went to get my stuff out of it I forgot the nut driver to take out my radio, and when I went back the next day to get it & my rims, they had moved it and wouldnt tell me where it was.

    Glad you're alright, but I must say that I kinda like the foggy images. Gives it an ominous feel.
