Seat Belts really do save lives!
So on Tuesday, I was minding my own business driving down the highway at 65 mph when all of the sudden the road turned and the car did not.
I over-corrected, swerved, flipped the opposite direction (into on coming traffic) and then rolled smashing the drivers side windows and eventually landing on all four wheels again.

As I was trying to find my phone to call Gary, spectators were gathering. Luckily once the Highway Patrol, Logan City PD and Sheriffs Dept. all showed up- the scene was in good hands.
The car was in a ditch full of water- YUCK! and had to be towed, but I only have a little cut on my hand. Maybe because I get to go to the Temple 3 times this week, I had a few guardian angels watching over me.
When I finally reached Gary- I just happened to be laughing so he didn't believe me when I told him I had just totalled the car.
When he got there to pick me up- He was a believer!
Gary said I can go off-roading again as long as I keep the wheels on the ground.

So glad you escaped with minor injuries. I agree with Gary. Next time, lets keep all four wheels on the ground!!

Becky! I'm so so glad you are okay, that could have been much worse! I am very grateful that you are a seatbelt-wearer and that you big, strong car didn't cave in on you! You are one brave woman!

So glad to hear that you are o.k. I firmly believe in seatbelts. And, Craig does, too. His father died in an accident because, he was not wearing his seatbelt. I never have to worry if Craig is strapped in, I just know.
We need to get together, soon. With the weather nice and school wrapping up, it might be easier.
Well, I am glad that you are safe.

Love, Koe
