    Roll Over on Heart Attack Hill in Anza Borrego

    I saw this one my of my local club's website. It's a good reminder to how dangerous 4-wheeling can be.
    4-Wheel Roll Over Accident Part 1 Heart Attack Hill Anza Borrego Springs

    I too sometimes take my seatbelt off to get a better view of an obstacle. That and make sure you strap everything down inside your vehicles in case of a rollover!

    That spotter sucked, and she needs to wear her seatbelt..
    Glad she'll recover though

    wow... thats scary... X2 on the spotter, but its easy to point fingers after a disaster. If nothing had happened, then no one would care.

    Thank God for 2 things, 1: she will make a full recovery, and 2: she was alone in the jeep...

    i feel very similar... but like i said, its really easy to point fingers after a disaster :-/ ... there were lots of mistakes made, but there are a lot of mistakes made all the time that dont end up bad as well... at least everyone survived

    this could happen to anyone of us at any time out on the trail, even with the best planning and spotting and practices, things go wrong.

    i wish her a speedy recovery and cudos to the camera person. nice to have a documentation of what happens afterwards.

    "Any one of us" would know not to let the passenger side go up that far on the hill, just before she rolled...

    Sean, nice of you to have sympathy for the situation. I counted 3 chances to correct her before she actually rolled....I blame the spotter. His hand signals sucked!

    oh i agree, and id hit that spotter when i recovered if i was her! he was an idiot and completely unhelpful. there were lots of things that went bad all at once for this to happen. driver inexperience, poor spotter and instructions, etc. it looked like if either of those had been better, this would not have happened. its an unpredictable sport, and that is why we love it. trail is never the same, conditions always change, etc.
