PHOTOS: Glenn’s rental car did not survive his daughter’s wedding weekend

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

This weekend, Glenn was in upstate New York for his daughters wedding. It was a rainy day – good luck for the bride and groom, but it turns out it wasn’t so lucky for Glenn and his rental car.

[nggallery id=28 template=galleryview]

“Imagine having one of these days where the stress is just going,” Glenn described, “This is like the end of the Father of Bride. Everything you’ve done. It’s in God’s hands now.”

After a long day spent with friends and family, and all the joy and stress that comes with a wedding, Glenn was happy to get back to the cottage he had rented for his family up in the Finger Lakes. As soon as he got to the front door of the house and put the keys in the lock, he turned around and saw his wife in her gorgeous, long evening gown standing in the mud trying to hold onto the SUV they rented.

As she shouted for someone to help her get control of the car, one of the member’s of Glenn’s security detail, Mark, jumped into the vehicle to try and get control. He was in the vehicle as it started to roll down the hill towards the lake, jumping out only as it started to roll and flip.

When he went back up to see if everyone in the Beck family was OK, Glenn told him he didn’t need to risk his life for “stuff”.

“Mark, don’t ever do that for material things,” Glenn told him.

“Sir, I thought Raphe was in the back of the car,” he told him.

Mark hadn’t seen Glenn’s young son as he had been wearing a black tuxedo and there was little light out in the woods at night.

“His looked like he had been in a war zone, his tux was all covered in mud and he still had rocks in his hands,” Glenn described.

The car ended up landing near the edge of the lake.

“I said to the kids I honestly said to the kids, ‘Well let’s go say our prayers, and go to bed.’ It was just one of those days. I watched my car roll down the hill, literally roll. Just like a movie. I just stood there. And I’m like ‘All right let’s go to bed.'”

The next morning he went down to inspect the vehicle: broken windows, busted axel, dents all over the car.

“I do believe I said to my wife before we went to bed did we get the rental insurance? She said yeah. I said let’s say our prayers and go to bed.”

        What stupidity? I suppose you have never had a car accident and anyone that has is “stupid” right? I can tell you who 99% of the people that read this website think is stupid . . . and it isn’t Glenn.

        I can tell you that a similar event happened to me when I thought I had put the van in park, but it hadn’t clicked fully into park. Van ended up knocking me down as I chased it and tried to stop it. Crazy things happen.

      imagine if he was driving a volt,what would’ve happened…there wouldn’t even be a dent..the whole car would’ve exploded..thank God you’re All safe and had a Happy Day..God Bless You Glenn and You’re Family and friends, hope you’re daughters well in NY as you live in Texas..God Bless You And May God Bless AMerica!!

        I’m not so sure the Volt would have exploded. It may still be back at the car-rental office and Glenn would have missed the wedding, as the Volt may not have started to begin with.

    Thankfully no one was in the vehicle when it happened; by the way the SUV is not a total disaster, its just now a ‘fixer-upper’ and probably qualifies for the next Obama ‘cash-for-cars.’

    I would love to hear what the rental company said.

      Beck wasn’t drunk, he wasn’t even in the car. You’re a libelous leftist liar and your post here proves it. No one was drunk! You really have a problem with the truth like all you leftist morons.

      And you think he was drunk because of what? Nowhere in the article does it say Glenn was even driving. Putting the story online isn’t exactly sweeping it under the rug. I’ve watched and listened to Glenn for years and attended his Restoring Love program in Arlington, TX. He is as honest and sincere as any “celebrity” I’ve ever seen. Go peddle your hate somewhere else

        I’m sorry, but why would glenn even print the article unless he was trying to draw sympathy for himself and/or rewrite the truth before anyone finds out about the real facts.
        Also, glenn beck is an alcoholic drug addict. Why wouldn’t anyone question his sobriety when the car was wrecked?

      I can tell you that you DEFINITELY have NOT heard it all — until now:

      I was actually MARRIED to a man who had the audacity to threaten an insurance investigator who was advising us on water damage to our home.

      Angry that the insurance company would not pay for a new roof, damage that was CLEARLY not caused by this storm, he said (and I am NOT kidding!):

      “So, you will pay for the water damage but NOT for the WIND damage to the roof. I suppose that if I BURNED THE HOUSE DOWN you would pay for the contents of the home, but not the home because it burned due to “structural defects.”

      This young insurance investigator very calmly looked at my ex-husband and said, “Well, sir; we WOULD have paid for the entire structure, BUT since you have now told me that you are not above committing arson to get your way, I am going to make note of your comments for future claims. You are aware that arson is against the law, right?”

      It was great. My ex was actually speechless and didn’t know how to act once someone stood up to him.

      • Diane Taylor

        kind of like Obama when challenged by Romney

      • LuAnn Herkstroeter

        Thumbs up! And I had an ex like that once. Get this. After being married more than 8 unhappy years, my highly GIA rated solitaire lost a big chunk, no reason. He shouted “We got cheated, it’s a fake!” (a recurring theme with him) and then he slid it across out 10 foot picture window. Yes, it cut it in two. I didn’t dare say anything then (or I would have gone through it,) but soon after, the dissolving diamond came true. Happily ever after with Hank now!

      • Neil

        The insurance investigator was completely out of line by including those remarks in your ex’s file for future reference.
        Your ex used the word “if” which makes the whole comment supposition, not antecedent.
        It was not a threat. Sounds like you still have an axe to grind with the Ex.

  • Mike Babb

    Thank the LORD everyone is safe, sound and OK. Good security detail. Someone had the smarts to by the CDW coverage offered by the rental co. I hope it was and
    ” Independent Insurance Agent”? I am one for 35+ yrs and like they say the SUV is a material thing, but by purchasing the CDW coverage, you should have little or no expense on this totalled veh. short of a small deductible at worse?
    If you want to REALLY understand the insurance industry and case/claim studies, i suggest go to www,iiabaof america and visit their “Virtual University”. These are professionals, researching insurance case studies and giving advise from all over North America! i depend on them every day, if I cannot research and determine a definitive answer for my clients from the policy forms/wording/exclusions and coverage parts…In many cases they have helped PROVE my point and clients were paid for their losses and that is what I am paid to do by them, if coverage applies..

    Glenn, Tonya- bless you. I am so glad you are OK. Mark, you are a hero to have jumped in to protect Raphe. To your daughter who was married, congratulations. The young man she has chosen is blessed to have become a member of the Beck family. God be with you.

    You broke the ship! You broke the bloody ship!!!

    I’m so glad to hear that everyone is okay – and that Glenn has such a great security detail. He’s right of course, I always tell people its a thing, that’s it, people count not things.

    Reminds of the the Jackass episode where they rent the car and take out the insurance, then beat the crap out of it and then return it on a flat bed truck..LMAO

  • Jerry Hodgson

    Wow Glenn! I’ve got Blue Collar Comedy Tour on dvd (thanks to my Pennsylvania mother in law) , i cant count the number of times i’ve gotten stomach cramps from laughing about his “rental car that’s about to have more airtime than a 12yo boy’s skateboard”, but YOU aren’t satisfied with stories, YOU get the inside feel! You live out the story!

    Oh, and…. Mr President and Co should take lessons from your staff about how to pla and react to real world emergencies! Words mean nothing if, when the bullets fly, the protectors flee! Excellence is not bestowed, its proven!

  • Stanley Steven Kaliski

    Nothing parties like a rental :-) Glad all OK.

  • Don Boudreaux

    Glenn: Thank God all is well now, may your daughter and husband have a long happy
    life together. On another subject, the country NEEDS a patriotic song to boost our
    morale, I recommend you get Alex Boye to sing O’ America, made popular by the Celtic
    Woman group. See and hear it on YouTube. It would be another God Bless America.

    Mark is a man of action and what I see when I think of America.

    When God’s angels are guarding you, guiding you and protecting you, it’s a blessing to say, “Let’s say our prayers and go to bed.”

    Good things in the end Mr. Beck. Just two days ago, while I am away on business, my truck’s brakes failed with my wife and daughter inside. No harm done. He is with them, I know that now.

  • Debbi Williams

    Blessings come in the most unexpected ways. The wedding, the family safety, the devotion of staff . . . . . you deserve all the blessings God’s sends you.

  • Cheryl Griffin

    Thank G-d you and your family and Mark did not get injured thank you for all you do and Congradulations on your daughter’s wedding.

  • Lisa Lee Gonzales

    I think Mark needs a raise. lol Thank God you and your family are all ok.

  • Brendan Moellmann

    how says something how close Glenn is to his security detail. mark remind me of Liam Neeson who trained Batman, Obi-wan kenobi…. dont mess with mark cause he must have been trained by Liam Neeson.

  • Mimi H.

    First of all, congratulations on your daughter’s wedding. I hope she and her husband will have a long, happy, healthy and wonderful life together.
    And I thank G-d with all my heart that He protected you and your wonderful family. And last but not least Mark who risked his life for you, may G-d always watch over him.
    Lastly, I hate to bring this up but are you sure no one tampered with your car?

  • Melanie McRoberts

    I just went through and read a whole bunch of the comments that people made about this event. Wow!! You sure have a great bunch of friends! To contrast these comments with those that I have read about Mitt and Ann Romney it was very refreshing. More of this kind of people need to comment on their sites too.
    So grateful that you we’re all ok! I love the fact that you simply said, “Let’s say our prayer’s and go to sleep”. Prayers of gratitude no doubt.

  • Dorothy Brown

    Just remember Glen, the Lord is always watching over you and your family. Our prayers are always with you. We all love you.

  • Jim Davies

    I can hardly wait for the leftist comments about “Glenn Beck drinking and driving–involved in near fatal accident.” (Note the water bottles scattered around the vehicle).

  • Chris Myers

    Dear Glenn, when I first read the headline, I thought somehow a liberal had gotten invited to your daughter’s wedding. ;-D My mind went racing to the hatred that some have and I couldn’t understand how someone could do such a thingand so on (I think faster than my computer loads screens sometimes- lol). Then the story came into focus and once again, there’re lessons in what you have to share. 1st; don’t judge a story by its headline, therefore becoming somewhat like those who are quick to judge. 2nd; Thank you for reminding me not to worry about things we have no control over- to just say my prayers. Lastly; to be gracious and grateful for those God chose to surround us with. It sounds like you are quite a “lucky” man. Congratulations on the wedding and may God continue to bless you and yours!

  • Doris Carman

    Thank God you were all ok.Who left the brake off and didnt put it in park.Thank you Mark.

  • wattsupstupid

    I heard a saying a long time ago that goes something like this. When things are going smooth and you are not having problems then is the time to start worring as Satan figures he has you and has gone on to someone else. You are teaching truth and Satan will try you as much as he can. Lots of prayers go out for you and your families safety daily. So glad that God is watching over you and so glad that Mark is such a great and devoted body guard for you and your family. This is going to be one of those stories that for the rest of your lives you will look back at with awe and also with much laughter. God Bless you and yours.

  • Bill Conkis

    To bad it wasn’t a Chev Volt.

  • Mike Crabtree

    Glad to hear everyone is ok, Mark, you are the man.
    Insurance will cover the car but not the other kind of loss, fortune was on your side and god was watching over you that day.
    Did anyone ever find out what caused the car to roll like it did, not roll as in flipping but start to roll down the hill where Mark had to jump in in the first place.

  • Anonymous

    A good reminder that we don’t know what will happen even a second from now, but we all can know Who the One who will be watching over us during the next event is. Thank our God that everyone is fine. The best things in life aren’t things.

  • Rico Katt

    That’s why I tell my daughter to ALWAYS use the emergency brake.

    Some cars have been recalled due to transmission failures that allowed the cars too roll. Is this one?

    We are happy that Glenn and family are okay. Sorry that Mark had such an horrific experience, but he was doing what he thought he had to do to save Glenn’s son.
    Your guardian angels are watching over your family. Blessings upon your entire family.

  • H John Massey

    Thankful you are all safe. God is good!

  • Dawn Brayton

    Thank goodness everyone got out of the car before it decided to drive on its own. Regarding parking on a hill the thing to do is turn the wheel so the front tires are turned then put the parking brake on. That should help if it happens again, hills are really hard to park on, Not sure if that helps during mud slides, though.

    Thank God no one was hurt and thank God for Marks heroism. It is good to know Glenn and his family are surrounded with good men. Miracles happen every day! God bless.

  • Christopher Fischer

    Yahoo News reporting this as

    Glenn Beck wrecked a rental at his daughter’s wedding over the weekend.

    Here is the comment that I posted that almost immediately disappeared from the site. lol

    Here is the original report from Glenn from Mon or Tue. in the first min he (Glenn) says that “One of the guys on our protection detail he was driving the car.” If this is true the statement “Glenn Beck wrecked a rental at his daughter’s wedding over the weekend.” is false. and the headline Glenn Beck totals rental SUV after daughter’s wedding may be misleading.

  • Steve- Construction Contractor

    I hope you got the $30 insurance.

    Total a SUV for $30 – DONE!

    Glad all are OK though. That could have been worse.

      If god were protecting his people, wouldn’t he have had Beck step away from the sauce before driving? Or maybe cause his foot to set the brake? Oh, yea, God works in mysterious ways…

    I have to tell you that I have missed you because you predicted- correctly-everything that is happening now with our country and, unfortunately, our current administration. O’Riely has  finally listened to what you had to say–better late than never! When Romney is elected  President, I will fall to my knees and thank God for delivering us from evil.

    I was so inspired by Glenn’s Christmas special and could not get the story of Longfellow out of my mind. The next day 20 minutes away, was the Newtown shooting. I prayed for God to give me words to write to comfort my state, friends involved. God pulled through ~ I believe I was just the vessel He used to write them. It was in the Newtown Patch and others in Ct ~ here’s the link ~ thanks Glenn for the inspiration ~
    Merry Christmas to all who are missing loved ones this Christmas.
