I'm sure he will be back online soon to tell us firsthand what went wrong.
In the meantime, it's quite pointless and disrespectful to speculate or make accusations. What's done is done, and only ONE forum member here knows what happened at this point.

He will read this in due time, so let's stick to keeping hope of him of getting released from the hospital and back on the forum soon.

Im in no way being critical... **** happens to the best of us. Just seems like it got away from him for whatever reason. Could be tire blowout, could have been a deer, you just never know. All that really matters is hes ok and recovering.

I completely agree with that, all I ask is we leave at that for now. For Steve's sake.
He's gonna be hurtin' for some time to come, dispelling "assumptions" need not be on his task list when he rejoins us.

Default Lastest on Steve

gotjuice? posted this 2 days ago: "Steve is getting better ever day. He was in a great mood today. Walking around and even joking with the nurses. He will probably be there until Monday. He is still using alot of the pain killers. He enjoys the visits, So any locals stop by and wish him well.
As far as what happen, I believe the car just got away from him. It had alot of power for the street. He really does not want to talk much about it. He did not want to see any pictures of what it looks like now. I have what is left of SICK HP in my possession. After he recovers we will decide what to do with all of the useable parts. Please don't bug him about what went wrong--Just wish him good luck with his recovery. THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR WISHING HIM WELL."

hang in there and keep lapping the nurses station.
Tip of the day: The more you take laps around the nurses station the quicker they let you out of the hospital. Ask me how I know, lol.

Terms like "I assume" and "you probably" and "it seems to me" are slippery slopes best left to the know-it-alls on CF. We're a tighter knit group and should expect better. Period.

My best to Steve on his recovery.

I just spoke with Steve. He's home and recovering but still very sore. The good news is he's on the mend.

He finally looked at pics of the car. He had been detailing the car at friends and was on his way home about 9:00pm. NO ALCOHOL was involved! He simply fell asleep. The last thing he remembers is getting up to speed between 3rd and 4th gear and then waking up in the hospital.

He finally posted up on CF and will get around to other sites in the next few days. Sleeping alot - which is good - but did get some work done today.

I could tell Steve was touched by all the well wishers on the forums. He was truly surprised.

Take is easy Steve and get back up to full strength soon. A lot of people care about you.

Your friend,

Kevin

As boring as that car was, I can see how he could have fallen asleep.

Glad you're home Steve!

Kevin, I really enjoyed our chat yesterday, I am up early as I have been sleeping pretty solid since 10pm.

Everybody thank you and life is great even in some of the pain and discomfort I am going through. It was until yesterday I saw the one picture and my mechanic says my POS Wolfe Street bar saved my life as they cut my seat bealt and I fell out of an upside down Vette
