One-handed typing

Today, I was changing a flat tire on my car when it fell off the jack and crushed my hand. After ripping my hand free and waiting 2 hours for AAA, I get to go find out if my hand is broken. FML

consider yourself very lucky it could have been something more critical like your head, chest or leg. always carry a jack stand in your trunk or use the flat tire you just took off and position it underneath the car as like a backup in case the Jack fails.

it also could have been a much worse hand break. hands are full of small easy to break bones which can easily be shattered from a car crushing it.

Yeah jack stands aren't that safe either. Had a stand and our jack and it just buckled sideways. Best bet is to never have your appendages under the car where it'll crush ya.
