    walked away with ZERO injuries. the only tears shed were for the taco.. RIP

    Story:
    2:30AM, left lane, moose came out, swerved into the median, got back on the road, made one full rotation, then rolled it upside down, slid across the highway and 125 feet into the woods, crawled out of it, finally stuck the magnetic lightbar on the side of the truck to flag someone down 15 minutes later. shitty.

    in the wonderful lands of vermont. i go to school up there.

    negative ghost rider. didn't have much frontal impact... although it looks like it.. it was just sliding on its back for a little bit. i'm sure curtains would've deployed, but my taco didn't have em.

    shelburne VT. hah i figured a FF would've sniped out the plate.

    75 cents.
