Driver falls asleep

Here's the before and after of a night of in August 1995 somewhere outside of Socorro, NM (which ironically means aid/help in Spanish). At about 230-300am, Heading south a few miles outside of the town I fell asleep at the wheel and according to a passing driver "my car went off the road up the side of a steep hill and flipped over."

I narrowedly missed the drop off of the side of the hill by about 6ft & was at it was at least a 100ft drop. It was only my friend and I and we both got out with only a few scratches and bruises and I dislocated my left shoulder. I thank God it didn't turn out worse than it did and no one else was hurt or worse.
