I had to write this email today, so I figured I'd paste it here
I was in my jeep, offroading with some other jeep friends. Another Jeep got stuck, so I hopped in mine real quick to head back and assist them. I was only 50-100 feet away, so I got in hastily and did not put my seatbelt on.
I went to turn around in a 3-point turn and when I was in reverse, I was leaning out the driver side looking behind me (no doors on the jeep). The jeep hit a rut unexpectedly and bounced me out the driver side, but my LEFT foot (think about it) got caught between the clutch and brake pedal...while the jeep was stuck in reverse...so it kind of dragged me until my head went under the tire and my leg snapped loose.
So it ended up being a completely broken tibia, a completely severed ligament or two, the calf muscle ripped some bone from the femur, the femur had a fracture as well, and some minor repair to the meniscus. 2 surgeries for some pretty extensive repairs and a lot of metal parts in there now. Fortunately head injury was 100\% superficial.
Wife has a pic on fB of my head, abrasions in the pattern of a tire tread, sweet
...but for now, I leave you with the aftermath:
