Killed a duramax and almost myself

Well about a month ago I was working on a job that requires me to drive about 50 miles to site and 50 miles home. After working multiple 14 hour days and having to leave my yard at 6 a.m., I finally gave out. Fell asleep driving our company's new rental which was a 2011 dirtymax 4x4 ccsb. Didn't wake up till after I went airborne the first time(sideways and through a stop sign where a road met highway) when I landed I was on the brakes and slid into the next culvert which did "work" on the truck. All said and done I'm lucky to be alive and impresses at how well the Chevy held up. But I still love my Ford.

Can't get phone to post. I only got one picture of the front end where the stop sign hit and you can see all the coolant and transmission fluid running down the incline.

Yea the Chevy's front end was ****ed. Never liked ifs, but it did earn a little respect that day. When I went airborne the second time all I could see was sky and wasnt expecting to even land on the wheels.

Yuck. That's always scary.... for you and others.

I fell asleep when I was 17 at 5am driving to work...managed ti hit a parked car, telephone pole, and rock wall as the same time, on the other side of the road.

I'm just thankful I didn't hit anyone.

I was the passenger in my friends 2004 cummins in which we jumped about 150 feet off a ditch aproach (i was sleeping and then the driver fell asleep. Landed on front wheels broke the front axels and then kept rolling about 300 feet and rolled and landed on tires. Their not unbreakable but then again we were not easy on it.
