I was driving home along the bay and was run off the road. It was have a head on or veer left. Out of nowhere I was hit by high beam, vehicle crossing the road onto my side. I went over a 50 metre cliff, landed on a rock ledge. It was just one almighty crash woops Im falling off a clilff, bye cruel world and then BANG and a flash of fire. It was from the busted carby I reckon. Fuel was burning on the engine block, the sea breeze was fanning the fire and smoke toward me.

I got out of the seatbelt OK, but couldnt move. I had to crawl over the seats to the back of the car. The front and side were crushed, too small for me to get out of what was left of the window space. I was trying to kick out what was left of the back windscreen. The panel of glass was shattered and compressed, smoke was billowing in. By now, blood was streaming down my face, I was disorientated. I didnt know which way was up. I moved around to try to force my way through the gap I had kicked in the windscreen.

Just as I got my head through the window, a tyre blew. I was starting to think that I wouldnt make it. No one was around, I dunno, maybe this took 10 seconds. I turned to God, I said aloud, "Any chance of one of those miracles mate?"

All of a sudden, I was grabbed by the Balls and reefed out of the car as it exploded!



Id like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Ball for rescuing me!

Mick I'm so glad that you made it out of there. After seeing the picture and reading the story it is truly a blessing that you did make it out alive. Here's to a speedy recovery mate and may the idiot that ran you off the road and did not stop to help be cursed.

This is such an unbelievable story I am wondering how you are able to write. Are you in a hospital??? 

It brought back memories of a terrible car crash I had about 15 years ago. Went over a 100 foot cliff and crashed into a tree. The Chevy Nova was a great car and probably saved us.

I feel for you and hope you are ok from all of this.

Let us know how you are doing.

Mick:

Just like everyone here, I'm so glad you are okay and more importantly alive. I have seen first hand how a few seconds of madness behind the wheel can change lives, or thinkings forever.

Knowing you, I see a manhunt in your future and justice at the business of a baseball bat. I know my way of thinking, and I don't forgive - I pity the fool that put you over a cliff as much as I know the Balls will have great respect from you.

Get back on your feet and all the achiness out of you, think about how lucky you are to be here and enjoy each moment twice as much as you have previously. Life is precious and we are flesh and bone and have a brain that is fragile as an extremely over boiler cauliflower. You are a lucky guy my friend - we're all glad you are still here to hear your story first hand and not a clipping from a newspaper posted by one of the other Aussies. Glad you're still with us, try and keep it that way!

He is thinking some don't understand that it was Mr. and Mrs. Balls that pulled him from the crash.
