He's alive....somehow!

Last night, around 12 my brother Mike was getting off work. On his way home he hit a patch of ice and rolled his car into the ditch. God must have been watching over him because his only injuries are a bruised thumb and knee and a sore shoulder where the seat belt was.
This is the drivers side door. The glass was smashed on the drivers side. He had to climb out the rear passenger door.
This picture was taken from the road. I couldn't believe how far into the ditch he went!

In this one you can see the path he took into the ditch. He must have rolled more than once.


The back hatch was open and his stuff was scattered all over the ditch. If he hadn't been wearing his seatbelt he might have been scattered all over too!
And yes, I made sure to hug him when I saw him today. :,o)

Absolutely frightening. I am so happy for your brother for not being hurt any more than he was and for you for having him safe.

That is just terrifying, Corinna! I am so glad he wasn't hurt badly and he wasn't scattered all over the place along with his stuff. Sending positive energy~~~

OMG!! I am so glad he wasn't hurt seriously. I would have a heart attack if my car flipped.

Oh my goodness! He did indeed have a greater power watching over him! Thank goodness he walked away with only a few bruises! Our wonderful Manitoba roadways in winter...NOT!
Take care...

This is certainly something to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving.
