Landon Turner... I never knew the name until reading this page...

When I was 18 I was heading to Columbus from Greensburg on a date. I thought I was through the curves, accelerated to 60, and saw that there was a 25 MPH S Curve sign at the last minute.

The cop that investigated the accident said that we were lucky to be alive, and that the car had flipped between a few trees that would have stopped it in mid-air similar to the way you would carry a mattress and box springs up a flight of stairs with a turn...

I was later told that an IU player had been paralyzed on the same stretch of road... Now I know who it was. Brings back some crazy memories... I remember watching (I was purely a passenger at that point) the sky, ground, sky, ground through the windshield before we finally landed on the wheels (breaking both axles)...

I only sprained my ankle even though we flipped bumper over bumper 2 times... Makes me feel even more lucky now.
