Hey mikekaz1, it would of been better if you said that's why you don't let jeeps with tube side steps off road.. Really was driver error all the way, way above her skill level.

Chances are, they are at a place no ambulance could get to, were over 30 minutes by car from the closest trauma center, and with a suspected broken back even if you could get an ambulance there, would you want to ride in bumpy ambulance? That is the kinda thing that could turn broken back with a full recovery to being in a wheel chair the rest of your life....

She didn't look THAT old, I didn't see any chest shocks or whatever being done.

That section of the trail is called "Heart Attack Hill".

Just sharing my experience a little here. People do what they want no matter what you tell them, and, on the internet, they all think you're just as full of crap as they are. Not always the case. It's information, do what ya want with it.

I've done some ridiculously dangerous stuff in my time, and survived. I'd probably get in to a little trouble again because that's what makes me feel alive. Not as much though, It's really not worth it. My back is busted in at least two places, I've had neck surgery and it's still debilitating. Not much chance of improving unless they get a lot better with lasers and stem cells. I can walk and get around and hide it well. You probably wouldn't know I was disabled if you saw me, but I have limits. I have been in my share of scraps in this condition too, but believe me when I say you wouldn't want to live like this.

People tend to think that just because a vehicle is 4WD that it can do things like you see in the movies. Most of the time you end up wrecking it that way, and you can mess yourself up in the process. I'm sure she was fine, I've been in a hell of a lot worse, like being thrown out a car window at over 120. Point is, for whatever it's worth, I'd find a field, take the easiest rout there, build a fire, and drink some beer. For me, its a way to get away from my neighbors and maybe fling some mud.

My diagnosis of that vid is, loose nut behind the wheel. The spotter waved her to his side and even moved out of the way, knowing what was coming. She drove the passenger wheel up the hill and added to the dangerous angle until it rolled. She should have stopped and paid close attention when she first got in to it. When he was pointing, he was probably saying, "Get off that incline!".

woah woah woah...never seen these. shows you how important spotters are...that first video of the lady rolling was so intense so close to just making it down. the second 2 min video of that lady spotting just looked horrible the whole time. never even been wheeling and but I've taken many physics classes, that wasn't looking good from the start. not sure what she was seeing.

On the upside, that police jeep in the first video was pretty awesome.

Heart Attack Hill is supposed to be one-way downhill only. Absolutely no way to get an ambulance in where there were at.
