It was good friday in 2004, and i was heading home for easter. I had just filled up the tank with premium and was driving down the interstate in the left lane. I reached to get a cd and my right rear tire slipped off the road. The tire immediately popped and when the mag rim hit the edge of the road the outer ring broke off and left me with five spokes in soft ground. the car started heading toward oncoming traffic completely out of control. i had visions of hitting a van load of old people and kids head on. I worked every conceivable method to try and turn the car away from the traffic and back into the median. Finally the broken mag must have gripped the ground enough to send me, in an unbelievable arc, away from oncoming traffic. At this point i thought i might be ok. What i could not avoid was the concrete overpass pillar. I hit the pillar sideways at 70mph. It ripped the entire back off the car and sent it spinning down the road, which i got to watch as i dragged ass to a stop. when the tow truck driver came he borrowed my key to turn the wheel and left it on while he lifted it onto the truck. hence the fire. the car had about 10k worth of ipd parts and accessories on it. Now i drive a c70. Volvo 4 life.
