Saw this on one of the Protege boards. This guy swerved to avoid a deer and went down an embankment, rolled 15 times and he walked away w/o a scratch. The MSP didn't do so well though. Said it is down so far they are gonna have to lift it out with a helicopter. He is one lucky SOB to walk out of it alive, let alone w/o a scratch.

I wasn't there, but it seems if his story is true and accurate:

1. It would of been much safer to hit the deer, yeah I know, no one thinks about that when one walks out and stops in front of your car.

2. If he was really driving 25-35 mph, how did the car flip 15 times?

3. Does the Mazdaspeed P come with rollbars? That roof doesn't look like 15 hits to me.

4. Somehow I don't think we got the whole story here.

5. The only thing that matters, is he walked away without a scratch and his pride seems to of survived as well.

6. Joking about a rental Focus, maybe he should be reading focaljet to see he most likely would of survived in one as well.

I could see that happening, makes sense to me. He swerves to miss the deer, runs wide and into the dirt, car starts down the hill sideways. The tires dig in and the car starts to roll over and over, but the bushes slow its descent a bit. It wasn't a cliff he went off, just a really steep hill. I bet the car didn't start rolling over until he was part way down the hill too.

You think so? I have only seen one rolled focus, and it was ugly, really ugly, can't imagine you would live though a multiple roll over with out a roll cage.

That said, I don't think that car went over 15 times. Looks like he went off backwards, rolled once, and came to a stop at the bottom of the hill.

Mine rolled at least twice (I wasn't counting). I just climbed out the window and yelled [censored] several times.
