Tonoclay

I stopped by the Napa Auto in Shaver to see what happened to Clay. They said he was able to walk away, but paramedics were called in. I hope nothing serious happened to you or the dog. If you are up to it fill us in. Total bummer man.

Re: Tonoclay

We stopped by as well and spoke to the Tow truck Driver who towed his rig. He said he was bleedig but ok. No word on his dog though :-(

We took some pictures (not uploaded yet). The rig is completely totaled. Apparently that corner on Dinkey Creek Road is natorious for accidents. A car pulled out in front of Clayton, he slammed on his breaks and hit the car from behind. That caused him to lose control and roll.

Hope you're ok Calyton......

Re: Tonoclay

If anyone has an update on his (or his dogs) status, please post up.

Is his rig completely totaled?

Re: Tonoclay

B.C. - Loren went into town for Breakfast and saw Clayton's rig sitting in the tow yard at Napa. We stopped on our way out.

Salerep - The Jeep is completely totaled. The roof was caved in, front window completely smashed and the body was taco'd. It was VERY creepy to see up close. I am surprised he got out ok, thay is how bad it is.

Aaron (DSXJ) took some pix and we shoud have them up soon.

Re: Tonoclay

From what the tow truck driver told us, someone came out in front of Clayton while he was heading out Dinkey Creak Road. He breaked and locked up all four tires and then struck the car that pulled out in front of him. The collision caused his car to pitch and roll. Apprently everyone including Bella walked away ok with some cuts and bumps. Beyond that I have not heard much. I hope that he and Bella are alright and in good hands. If there is anything that I or others can do please let me know.

Here are the pictures I took of Clayton's Rig in the auto yard:

Re: Tonoclay

damn, that sucks so much! I have been back and fort on building a cage...well this made my mind up for me. these xj's just don't do well in roll overs. I'm gonna get a tube bender and build one in the next few months (Ben H remember I was looking for another project). and as I write this I just got a call from Clayton....Bella's O.K. I guess I should of asked how Clayton was . I think he will probably post on here shortly, but he is ok, went to work last night(total stud!), and is bummed out about his ride. I told him that everybody was really concerned about Bella and also somewhat concerned about him . and we definately need to build u a cage bro!

Re: Tonoclay

36 stitches it could have been a lot worse. He should contact blodejon about selling his old rig for parts. Get some money for his new rig.
