So earlier tonight, around 12:15AM (5 hours ago), I was following my friend to someone's house. His turbo 2003 Mazdaspeed Protege easily loses me, so I speed up in my 4-cylinder Cherokee to catch up.
I forgot there was a sharp turn.
Brakes locked, jumped the curb, flipped once and landed on my drivers side in a concrete ditch. Only marks on me are bruises on my left leg. Mom made me go to the hospital, they gave me a CT scan, came out normal.
As far as Jeep goes, it's totaled. The front grill, bumper, and headlight assembly was destroyed. The passenger side front door was bent inwards. All the glass was knocked out except the windshield. Frame twisted. Axle snapped. Many dents.
My friend, who was in the passenger seat wasn't so lucky. Sort of. He got a small cut on his hand from the flying glass. Besides that he's fine.
I called my girlfriend as soon as I climbed out of the steaming pile of jeep; she probably broke nearly every possible traffic law in Atlanta getting to me.
Moral of the story: DONT SPEED IN A JEEP.
Oh, and, if anybody in Atlanta wants to see the remnants for some odd reason (Jeep got towed but theres glass and 150feet of skid marks) it's halfway between Georgia Perimeter College Dunwoody Campus and Mt. Vernon Hwy (on Tilly Mill).
