I'm not going to say too much, as I'm quite tired and stressed out, but as the title suggests, my brother wrecked his truck. Pretty badly, as the pictures show. Basically, Sunday morning, he was on his way to work and fell asleep at the wheel after having gotten little sleep the previous night. He whacked a steel sign that barely budged. The result of was him needing to be life-flighted to Pittsburgh. He wasn't wearing a seatbelt, either, and as you see from the one interior pic, the steering wheel and windshield took his impact. Externally, he has a broken femur, which came through the skin; broken wrist, facial lacerations, broken nose, and random other cuts and bruises. Internally, he ruptured his spleen, bruised some other gland that I can't recall, and bruised his heart. No head injuries, thankfully. As of today, he went through his fourth and final surgery and was breathing on his own, not to mention talking. It's basically just recovery from here, as far as I know. He's expected to be in the hospital for atleast a week. I'll try to update you guys on how he's doing.

Oh Viper, that is horrible. That old rusty-framed Ranger just collapsed. I hope your brother makes a speedy and complete recovery so you can kick his ass for not wearing a seatbelt. Take care and let us know when he's able to come home.

Damn man, could've been much worse by the looks of that ungodly frame damage, and I agree with Blu, kick his ass for not wearing his belt. Glad he didn't get anything that would've handicapped for life however.

BV sorry to hear about that. Seatbelt is the only reason why I am still typing here after my horrid crash. It is the best safety invention ever. I hope he has a speedy recovery.

Bad wreck.

I hope your brother has a speedy recovery - and learns something from the experience.

I simply can't imagine falling asleep at the wheel.

Thanks, guys.

Blu, we're most certainly going to kick his ass for not wearing one. He's lucky to be alive. He most likely got it from my parent's, who also fail to wear theirs. Either way, he's stubborn. Hopefully, this will teach him something (I tend to drive to my limits, but atleast I wear mine, not that it would make much of a difference in some cases.) He's doing good, though. He lost his wallet somewhere in all this chaos, as a downside. It had about $600 in it.

Wow, awful...

And weird for me, I know that EXACT spot and even that sign, having passed through there many times. If PA is good for anything, it's hilly, curvy roads, and big signs. Seems like a combo of those things made for a bit of a problem here.

Hope he gets better!

His girlfriend from Arkansas and her parent's supposedly came up tonight to see him. I'm surprised. :P

Anyways, he's still improving. Would have liked to driven down today, but I had to work. Perhaps tomorrow despite having to work as well.

He's home now and doing pretty good. He's supposed to go for physical therapy daily and two nurses are supposedly coming to instruct us how to inject his $800 medication. Gotta love Lovenox. Walking isn't too big of a problem for him, though, he does have a crutch to help him around and Vicodin for any pain. The biggest issue is our two story house. He's pretty much stuck sleeping on a couch for now. Per his truck, it's going to the crusher to pay for the costs of towing and parking from it's current location.
