Exclamation i'd say an angel was watching over us both...

Sup ppl...
i figured i'd share how my saturday night was...

was bout 2 am on a saturday night Jan.2nd, picked up a female friend who lives on angeles crest street and we headed up angeles crest mountain... was taking her to a view spot for, u know...neways. at mile marker 30.65, no speeding no nothing, max i went was 35mph.came up to a pretty bad ass turn...the second i turned i saw 3 animals of some sort kicking it on the road. i panicked, swirved, hit the brakes, hit dirt road which didnt help me from stopping. flew straight off the ledge... flips+turns+tree+flips+turns+flips and landed on 3 rocks 426 feet down the mountain...Both of us are okay...walked out clean...i just have a fractured collar bone and my whole left side is killing me like crazy. the female is perfectly fine, just a few cuts n bruises.

neways...here are pics...

You walked away from that?

You are one extremely lucky person and should be very thankful.

A broken collarbone is painful, I know, but it sure beats a casket.

Be thankful you are alive, people can be seriously injured or killed in even small fender benders; let alone driving off a cliff and falling 400 feet.

You are lucky.

hmm honestly...the second i went off the ledge i slammed my right arm back towards her chest to hold her in place and said hold on. after that it was an out of body experience...like everything was 3rd person to me...
after we landed and i made sure she was okay i turned around and told her ," so u like the view?" loll

and im leaning towards a C63 right now, but not sure yet...

i have one question tho... u guys think suing bmw for the air bags not opening is a good idea and will go through? because the front ones or the passanger side ones didnt open...
