600 lb. woman survives getting thrown through sunroof
Town N Country, Florida – A woman is in stable condition after being ejected through the sunroof of her SUV during an accident.

Thirty-seven-year-old Ruth Matthews told paramedics that another vehicle cut her off in traffic, and she took evasive action to avoid a crash. Her Isuzu Amigo rolled over and she was thrown through the sunroof and onto the roadway. Investigators say she was not wearing her seatbelt.

Paramedics initially tried to fly Matthews to Tampa General Hospital, but her weight, estimated at 600 pounds, made it impossible. Emergency crews were able to transport her to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where she is listed in stable condition.

Authorities are continuing their investigation

I wonder if her weight caused the suv to roll. That's a lot of weight to have swerving and shifting around suddenly.

I heard she farted and it kicked open the drivers door and blew her SUV over. :dunno:

It is now!

From the picture, it looks like the sunroof is stretched. Dunno if that's from the rollover or from ejecting her.

I wonder what the GVWR of an Amigo is and with her in it, does it come close to exceeding that!

The center of gravity was totally altered by her weight. :crazy: That, and the fact that it was an already dangerous Amigo, did her in. But I am baffled by the sunroof's passing of a 600 lb woman. :confused:
