Yesterday I was going to the same poker game where I won $300 day before yesterday. When I woke up yesterday I didn't feel like playing poker that day because there is a problem with me that when I win I play scared money thinking I don't want to lose what is already in my pocket. So I miss 1-2 days between live sessions to erase that thought. This mostly happens when I win huge and I am afraid of losing it the next day.

But after 3-4 hours I thought let's go to the poker-room and kill the fishes whilst they are still there. The poker room is 20kms from my home.

I started the car and to avoid traffic jam I took a long way which is a 3 lane narrow flyover (I will use left, middle and right lane) about 4kms in length. I drive fast specially when I am alone because when someone is with me and if I crash I don't want someone else to die or get hurt because of my mistake. So I drive slow and perfect with friend and family. But alone I get into beast mode and rev the engine to max.

So I was almost in the middle of the flyover and at about 110km/hr & there was a car on my left at same speed. Suddenly I saw a car which is standing still on my lane at about 400 metres distance straight ahead, he was changing is flat tyre. I wanted to turn steering to the left to change the middle lane but there was that other car parallel to me. And on the right was the divider/railing (In India we drive left side of the road). So I freaked out and slammed the brakes so hard that the tyres locked itself causing the car to get unstable and out of control & I hit the right side rail which is safer side as I can't fall down becoz there is like 3 feet gap in flyover b/w both incoming and outgoing road.

Then my car flipped over once I hit right side fly-over rail. I flipped my car 4 times (The road is 3 lane wide so by 3rd flip I should be falling down the flyover) and in the end it landed on the roof. It all happened on a fly-over which was 400 metres high from ground. I thought I am going to fall from the flyover down as it's a narrow flyover but the rail/divider was strong that hit the car back and didn't let the car go over it.

Thought that came in my mind in the proper order:
1. I am in an accident for real.
2. If I flip 3 times I think car will fall down just now. Because 3rd flip means I hit left rail which is unsafe side and I will drop 400 metres to the road below.
3. I count 1,2,3,4 rollovers. I think I am already on my way down just about to hit the ground.
4. Okay this is the last day of my life. Game Over. Is it so easy to die. Eyes closed and you are gone, you don't feel anything.
5. Last Hope: Final thought I am dreaming I will wake up just now any second.

Then a person open my car door and pulls me out. As I was upside down. I thought how come I am alive after falling from flyover. Then I saw I am in the middle lane of the flyover and hit the left unsafe side rail and it pushed me back. Thanks to strong rail and concrete boundary.

I checked only one bruise on the leg. I don't know how I walked out alive with almost no scratch. Seat belt saved my life and I think I am the luckiest person. Coz no one on the road thought that the person who is standing besides the car could be the driver. If I wasn't wearing seat belt I don't know if I would be alive.

Bypassers stopped and asked where is the driver, I said I am they said are you okay coz it looks like you must have broken something for sure. Cops came they thought driver is already on his way to hospital. Almost 40-50 people who stopped for help all said that we never saw someone standing like that after such a crash with no injury. People were amazed. And I don't know if it was my due poker luck or life luck that I didn't die.

Car is wrecked. But who cares about the car. It's like I gave the worst bad beat to death, I thought my equity is 1% on the turn (on my 4th roll-over) and river (god) saved me.

Lesson Learnt: No High speed and always wear selt belt.
