    R.I.P. 04 STi - Everybody keep ugmsti433 in your prayers *PIX ADDED*

    Hey guys, thought I'd make a post about this because I have a couple of minutes.

    ugmsti433 (Andrew) and I were driving my car in some heavy rain last night at about 7:00. I was the driver, he was the passenger. At about 40-45 mph, we hit a deep puddle of water that hydroplaned the rear end of the car (worn tires) and sent us into a drift that angled the car 90 degrees to the left, drove us up over the curb on the median and sent us into a tree on the passenger side of the car (right front fender/wheel/front of the passenger door). --I cannot understate the importance of good tires!! They were going to be replaced next week, but it's obviously no use now...

    The car was totaled, and Andrew and I had to go to the hospital. I'm hurtin but OK, and Andrew is still in the hospital, now in ICU. 3 broken ribs, a partially collapsed lung and some pre-existing respiratory issues are causing complications. He's getting a lot better, and should hopefully be out of here soon (I'll be staying here in the hospital until then), but just wanted you guys to send your thoughts/prayers to him as he recovers. I'll keep everybody apprised of what's going on. Pictures of the wreck in a week or so. Thanks for the support, guys : /

    UPDATE: PIX...
