Emulating a commercial?
It actually looks as though the rollbar was far from crushed, though it was deformed. The kids must've been blazing through that field...
Three kids and one first gen 4Runner...

it's also in the denver post. 28 yr old, 20 yr old and a 15 yr old went off trail into a gully in golden area. none were belted in, rolled their 4runner, were thrown from the rig and died.

:eek:

Thinking back on all the stupid stuff I did when I was young(er) sometimes I'm amazed I'm still here...Darwin's rule definitely could have applied to me on more than one occassion.

Yeah. Like the time I woke up I woke up on a love seat we'd stuffed in the back of my buddy's pickup as we were going over Trail Ridge road, weaving across the center line at 3:00 in the morning. :eek: I had him stop the truck and I drove all the way home to the Tech Center. :rolleyes:

This is the kind of story that makes me scared as a father. I wonder how old I was when my parents stopped worrying whether I was actually going to live.

From the Denver POST:

"The three were in a red, open-topped 1988 Toyota 4Runner that was traveling northwest through tall, grassy terrain off Colorado 93, near a housing area, when it came upon the gully, Mares said. The vehicle hit the gully and flipped over onto its top.

All three passengers were not wearing seat belts and were ejected from the SUV, Mares said.

The vehicle apparently left an access road and was cutting cross-country when it flipped over, Mares said.

Posted signs in the area stated off road driving was not allowed.

Alcohol, drugs and speeding are unknown factors at this time pending further investigation..."

There is a contingent among 4x4ers (to use the term loosely) who believe such signs do not apply to them. Slaughterhouse, Carnage, Spring Creek...

These guys won't make that mistake again I guess.

About ten years from now.

My son bought a motorcycle. Eeek. At least he will take rider training. It's a freaking go-fast Buell too.

At least it ain't a Gixxer 1000 or something.
