Default Sad day today...

Coming home from the race track around 330 this morning and I dozed off getting on the exit as I was going from one highway to the next, and went straight into a concrete barrier, launched the truck, slammed into the ground, and the barrel rolled at least 2 times. Went at least 200 yds. Thankfully I was wearing a seat belt and walked away with some cuts in my head. Unfortunately the truck didn't get the same result....

Sorry to hear that. Glad your ok. I fell asleep on a off ramp once and woke up when I hit the grass. Avoided a sign pole but hit a light pole. Lesson learned. Pull over and take a nap for even 10 minutes and you won't doze off

I hope they suspend your license or you get some jail time. You need to get it figured out. There is no excuse. Stop being a cheap *** and stay in a hotel if you're tired and plan to drive. You're right up in there with drunk drivers in my mind. I'll be damned if I die or someone else I know dies again because you aren't smart enough to know when you can and can't drive. Why even chance it? Heart attack behind the wheel - OK I understand...but falling asleep? That's on you.

Thank god no one was seriously injured. Please, go buy a pedal bike and stay on the sidewalks. We have no use for you on the road.

The thing is I wasn't tired up to that point. It just kinda hit me and that's when it all happened. I didn't want this to happen. I loved this truck to death.

Which is why I'm always wired on energy drinks when I don't sleep much. Subs blasting and energy drinks will keep you up and alert
