She was on her way home at 6:15 am wednesday morning. As she came around a curve, a Jeep Wrangler struck her car head-on while driving on the wrong side of the road. The driver of the Jeep died instantly. He was not wearing his seatbelt. My sister is badly bruised and could barely walk today. I took her back to the ER today and as we walked (slowly) to the entrance, we saw a sign in the ground that read: "SEATBELTS SAVE LIVES" We kinda looked at each other and said No ****

I will post the pictures of the car in a few days.

Please be careful out there, especially those who are affected by this week's storm.

Wow, glad to hear she's going to be alright. Its always a bit of a miracle what kind of crashes we can walk away from.

Sorry to hear that Jim - glad she's doing okay. It's just sad that innocent people pay the price when stupid people do stupid things. Do they suspect alcohol was involved, with the guy crossing the center line and all?


WEAR YOUR SEATBELTS EVERYONE!

The police did not release any of that info yet. It was shortly after 6 am on a wednesday morning. So, some think he was driving to work. The guy lived about 1/2 mile away from my sister's house.

Jim,
so sorry to hear that, glad she is o.k. My mother and brother were hit broadside once, spun the car around 3 times, the door flew open and the only thing holding her in was the seatbelt. It broke three ribs, but that is better than getting ejected. I hope your sister has a smooth recovery, and that she is fully compensated for her pain.
