Crashed my Jeep into a tree :(

Unread post by kam111111 » August 28th, 2014, 5:46 pm

My next video, but not that positive this time :/

We had a very slippery and muddy Sunday last week.

We were driving down a little hill, gaining little bit too much speed. After some point the Jeep started to slide to the right. At this point I lost all steering control and just tried to slow down the vehicle.

Unfortunately it was not enough to prevent the Jeep from going over the bank . And to make it even worse, a huge hole to our right appeared, where we were exactly sliding to. As soon we started to drop into the hole, I turned hard right and accelerated to prevent from rolling.

Well learned from the mistake, fortunately not the hardest way, almost rolled :/

We had our Action Cam running, here is the video.

Oh yeah, the damage was really minor considering what happened, so glad.

Here is my first temporary fix, like new again xD

That looked like it could have been waaaay worse, lucky boy. Thanks for sharing kam. Worth an insurance claim?
