My Freak Accident on 7-3-11.

By TerryO

Hello my friends,
I don't want to be felt sorry for, only want to tell my friends about my bad luck yesterday. I had a freak accident that left my right foot broken in several places. I am so so fortunate that I had my cell phone with me and my best friend Tazz was not out of town. I was out cruising around the country side joy riding in my black 78 Corvette. I was out of any populated area but still within 10 miles from home in the middle of no place. I was winding out second gear and I think I over revved it and car stopped running. So as I coasted to a spot on the side of the road I realized I was going to have to push it buy hand just a little bit. As I hopped out to push my car it was still rolling and my right foot got too close to the rear left tire and it got run over. OUCH :( Man what a stroke of bad luck. I called Tazz and he dropped what he was doing and came and helped me push it to the side then he took me to a nearest hospital then not only did he go back and supervise getting my car towed back home, he even got it placed back in my garage. Now THAT's a real friend. Go visit him when you have spare time.

Thanks again Tazz.

So all in all I broke my motor and I broke my foot all within about 30 seconds.

Sorry that happened to you, I guess thats a "bad double break", money can fix the motor, but do all the PT for your foot.

Sad, sad story, but it sounds like you're taking it well.
I ran over my son's foot once. But it was in a Datsun and just got the edge of his shoe mostly. We were on vacation at Mount Rushmore and he got out of the car before it stopped. He was much luckier than you -- came away with no damage, just frightened (as was I). The car still ran, too.
