Ouch. A good reason for cages and shoulder harnesses.

Re: Newspaper article - Tipped over on leg.

[img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] I rescued a guy who had rolled a Jeep pickup sideways down a hill and in the process the door came open and his leg stuck out only to be captured by the door as the weight of the cab went on it. All it took was a jack and he had one behind the seat, but it was just inches too far away. He had not been pinned long....we saw him roll from a distance and drove over. This Jeep pickup had tons of junk in the cab and it beat the heck out of him as he rolled. He was so busy dodging tools and parts that he got his leg out of the open door.
