Xterra 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,500 miles
I am currently recuperating from an SUV rollover accident. A truck ran a red light and hit the passenger side of my 2001 Nissan Xterra xe. The Xterra rolled over several times with the roof crushing in on me, breaking the windows out. When it stopped tumbling, it was upside down and continued sliding down the road on the roof. When the roof caved I was crushed down and my head went toward the door. My hair, which was barely shoulder length, went outside the window and was caught between the roof and the road. I was sliding upside down, at an angle, being held by my seatbelt, my hair trapped between the roof of the Nissan and the road, with my hair being ripped out. When the vehicle came to rest I was trapped by my remaining hair. Witnesses lifted the vehicle up off my hair to free me. This was a horrible experience that has caused me injury both physically and mentally. The link below is to our local television station's website with details of the accident. If anyone is interested in more details or photos please contact me. The television reporter contacted us and emailed pictures from the crash site. My husband also took photos at the wrecker lot with our digital camera. www.firstcoastnews.com/news/news-article.aspx?storyid=19812 if you wish to call and speak directly with me my home number is (904) 388-2476.
