It happened this past Winter in the city of Lockport in Buffalo New York, to set the situation, it was cold, it was slippery, and it was snowing.
I had just bought my 2003 Grand Am GT, I tricked it out with all of these performance parts, inside and out. This was my baby. It was about 11pm and I was heading off to work. Running a little late, I decided that I would push the car a little faster. I came over a hill I guess around 60 m.p.h., when I hit drift in the middle of the road. My car did 4-360-spins before launching off a 7 ft. ditch, the passenger side of my car hit the lip of the other side of the ditch, sending my car into a barrel roll and right into a tree.
I was ejected out of the sun roof and landed 70+ feet from the car. I ended up with serious road rash on my face, I shattered elbow, I shattered my femur in 6 places, and practically busted my ankle right off. I was in a wheel chair for 4 months, and have had 3 surgeries since. Lesson learned, sometimes even the speed limit is too fast....
Just a little side note, anyone interested in buying a Grand Am, I was curious as to how I survived this, so when I asked a dealership, they gave me the tour of all the safety features, I commend Pontiac with their safety features.
