Umm... yeah...

About 30 minutes ago, I was in a ditch along side the highway, prying a door open so my little sister could crawl out of her truck. She was on her way to her first day of school. The truck rolled about 1 1/2 times, and came to rest on the drivers side, up against a tree. She was in the bottom of a gulley, and called my mom by cell phone. She was unharmed, and was standing in the truck, looking out the passenger door, watching traffic drive by. Mom tried calling me at home, but I was using the internet trying to get myself to sleep.

The doorbell rang, I figured it was a package. It rang again... that means someone needed to talk to me, so I'm pulling on jeans and a t-shirt as I open the front door. There stands our neighbor, who usually works construction, but got rained out. So he tells me that mom called him to ask if he could go check on Alyssa. She had run into a ditch, and was ok, but didn't think that a truck could pull her out. OK, sure, lemme pull on my boots, and out the door I'll go.

I call mom on her cell...
No answer.
I hang up.
Phone rings.
It's mom.

She says that Alyssa's in a ditch she's alright, so I need to go check on her. Fine and dandy. Then she says that I'll need to take something to break a window cause she can't get out. <click> I hung up and bolted out the door.

The neighbor told me about where she had wrecked, so I was driving like a mad man. I musta been hittin 80 on a gravel road barely wide enough for my truck... It's the backway to town. Once I got to the highway I made a wrong turn, not that I knew where I was going anyways. By the time I figure that I've gone the wrong way and turn around, my neighbor had gotten to the highway. We conversed, and he heads up the hill. I turn around and follow.

I'm driving up the road, and see tracks in the grass on the right side of the road near a deep ravine/washout, where a culvert goes underneath the road. My stomach tightenes and I try to look out my passenger window to seen down into it, but can't. So I glance off to my left, and see my sister's truck sitting up next to a tree all mangled. So I click on the flashers and run across the road. She's in there, with her head peeking out of a window, talking to mom on the cell phone. I yell for her to call 911... something that they hadn't done yet. I see that the door is jammed, the front passenger quarter panel pushed back and wasn't allowing the door to open properly. So I run to get my the hammer. I get back to the truck, and she tells me that the door will open, so I stand on the passenger door frame and pull the door open. She pulls herself out, she's unharmed, but shaken, and all I can do is hold her. People have since then started to stop, (I left my truck in the right lane with flashers on.) They were asking all sorts of questions, none of which I really cared about. Then our other neighbors, who also happen to be our bus drivers are coming home from morning bus route, and they stop. Some dude had already gotten my sister off of the truck and was holding her like a toddler. By now, about 4 or 5 vehicles have stopped, and were helping to make sure everyone was alright.

Then a cop got on scene, my dad came, and we got all of my sister's school stuff out of the truck by breaking the windshield enough to get to it, since it had all fallen to the drivers side door, that was on the ground...

She's completely fine, shaken, but fine. I don't know if she's going to school, or coming home or what.

Tell your sister that the next time she is stuck in a truck to call 911 immidiately. In shock situations she could have been seriously injured and not even known it.
But wow, how lucky and blessed you are!

It makes u realise how lucky you are to have the people you love.

My mum and dad where in Eygpt when the bombs went off, they were there on holiday. They were in the town that evening and had decided to go back to the hotel they were staying at, so they went to a nearby taxi rank and went to back to the hotel. 10 minutes later there was a large explosions from the town. Apparently the first that was heard by them came from the taxi rank they had just been to, in a diffence of 10 minutes I may have lost both my Mum and Dad, so when you decide to choose to bitch about your parents over stupid crap, is it worth it!

Well now I find out that she actually tried to call me first. :(

She also was telling mom about all the people that were just driving by. Which sucks hard. But, you really couldn't see in the truck, it wasn't smoking or anything. When I got there I didn't know if she was still there or not until I heard her yell.

Man there were crap tons of people there.

The little trooper is going to school yet today. Hopefully she'll survive riding there with Dad. He's such an understanding guy. :rolleyes:

I think the lectures can wait for at least a day or two. I'll make sure to tell her about dialing 911. She climbed out of the ditch herself, which itself wasn't a small feat, could talk coherently, and didn't seem hurt. I may run into town to see if I can get some pictures, of both the site and the truck.

She WAS wearing her seatbelt. And as I had assumed, she drifted off the right side of the road, overcorrected, and the ass end came around on her. Probably because she trompped the brake, but, of that, I'm unsure.

I'm guessing that she's going to have some aches and pains tomorrow.

She also claims to remember the entire event. Which, by the end result, I can't figure if it's a good thing, or a bad thing.

I don't really think it's going to phase her. Unless Dad somehow convinces her that she should have done something different... and she starts to second guess herself.

I just realized that my family can be dysfunctional at times... all in all though, it's really usually laid back and easy come easy goes...

I don't know that she was in much shock... she claims to remember everything, and most people who in shock, have spots and parts they can't remember, at least that's the way it's been from people I've talked to in that situation.

Yeah. Plus your adrenaline goes berzerk. I'm surprised she didn't kick the fuckin' window out herself.

P.S. you're a good brother.

From the looks of it, she couldn't do much but stand up. The truck was standing totally vertically on it's side. Drivers door on the ground... when the truck rolled, it kocked the sliding rear out of it's frame, so it wouldn't slide open. And she wouldn't have been able to sit any where and kick. But she was ok, so probably didn't get too excited about having to get out. The windshield was all shattered, but with the plastic in the middle it didn't go anywhere. I'm just amazed that nothing really bad like gas leaking out, or the radiator steaming up was going on.

I think I'm going to go take pictures now.

Just to clarify? This was a schoolbus? Were there any other children? And what happened to the driver? And where's your sister now? And why are you not with her and online instead?

This was a 1987 Ford Ranger. She was the driver and sole passenger. I'm not with her now because she went to school. I, already having attended High School, didn't think it necessary to go to school with her. The bus you are referring to was there because after the morning route, the neighbors, who drive the bus, go home. They were passing by and stopped to help. I'll get pictures uploaded tomorrow.

Fucking taters is right. She coulda been pushing daisies. Thank goodness.
