Car Wrecks

Over the years I have pretty much been turned into a crash test dummy. I could get a job rating air bags for car manufacturers. I gave up motorcycles after 7 crashes. My luck did not improve when I switched to cars.  To follow are photos of three cars that were totaled while I was driving them, and at the bottom of the page is a link to a video compilation I made of several of these wrecks.   Additionally, information on my First Responder DVD Video Series is below the video link.

My first car was totaled!

My 4th car was totaled!

1997 Camaro with 7000 miles (six months old) got creamed in a car wreck in Dallas on 9/23/97. Totaled the '97 Camaro and got a '98 to replace it.



My 5th car was totaled!

My '98 Camaro was totaled on 12/22/2000. The jaws of life were used to cut me out. No broken bones, again. Camaro's are pretty sturdy cars. A Cadillac Escalade ran a red light, hit me on my door and threw me into two other vehicles. The 2000 Cadillac Escalade and my car were totaled, the other 2 vehicles sustained moderate damage.

First Responder Extreme Crash Video Series

I am producing a video series on DVD and VHS that will be released shortly.  For a six month period I was doing a first responder test for some ideas, and utilizing a database that captured all major accident calls in Dallas, I began parking my vehicle in strategic positions in the City of Dallas.   This resulted in some amazing video footage.  Monitoring the Dallas Fire Department Website and a scanner that monitored both Dallas Police and Fire Department radio calls, I began responding to accident scenes of serious accidents and accidents requiring the jaws of life to remove victims.  Due to the strategic placement I was able to arrive either shortly before or simultaneously with emergency vehicles.  This resulted in some amazing footage that I shot as I arrived and documented both the scene and the extraction where the jaws of life were utilized.  I am currently editing this footage into a 3 DVD/VHS tape set that I will begin offering on my website.  I will charge a nominal price for these with a reduced amount when purchasing the whole set. Some of the things you will see in the tape are:

  • Multiple DWI suspects undergoing Field Sobriety Tests and arrests after causing serious accidents.

  • Suspect who fled the scene leaving 5 vehicles crashed and the freeway shutdown.  Police officials gave me full access and I was able to document the entire scene.

  • Suspect arrested after running a red light and hitting a small car broadside.  Jaws of life used to extract 3 women returning from Bible Study. (The entire extraction was filmed and appears plus the suspect being arrested. Marijuana and alcohol were found in the vehicle.)

  • New Black Mustang exploded after breaking down in fast lane of freeway and was rear-ended by a truck.  Young male did not have time to raise hood or trunk and was hit at 70.  I arrived and filmed the entire event beginning as the first fire truck was extinguishing the flames.  A witness gave a statement on camera to myself and network news cameras who arrived after I did. The extraction was filmed and the deceased being placed in the medical examiners vehicle. 

  • Driver who was going to miss turn tried to change lane at last second and hit construction barrel, flipping his vehicle upside down.

  • DWI suspect never stopped at red light and rear ended vehicle in front of it at light, nearly killing the driver and flipping both vehicles.  

  • Much, much more...
