Steven Ripley's flipped Honda Civic (Photo: mlive.com)Michigan State students and fans took to the East Lansing streets Saturday night after the Spartans knocked off formerly unbeaten Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game.
Around 2:30 a.m., a little bit after the time MSU student Steven Ripley returned to his apartment after work, several over-excited celebrators submerged on Ripley’s 1995 Honda Civic in the parking lot of his apartment building. From the window of his apartment, Ripley and his roommate saw as the fans turned his car onto two wheels and by the time Ripley and his roommate made it outside to the car, the car had already been flipped over.
The car was totaled and the costs for repair were beyond anything Ripley, a self-described “broke college kid,” could afford.
“It was probably one of my lowest points,” Ripley told mlive.com. “I was struggling financially, a broke college kid, even before my car was flipped over. I didn’t know how I was going to figure it all out.”
