Tuesday (5/12) evening my wife was stopped at a traffic signal while driving home from work.
A 1987 Ford conversion van rear ended her 2008 Ford Fusion. Police estimate the speed of the
van to be somewhere between 50-60 mph. As a precaution they removed the driver side doors and
support pillar to get her from the car since the doors would not open and did not want to chance
her having neck or spinal injuries. To make a long story short, other than bruises and as you can
imagine being extremely sore 24 hours later, my wife for all practical purposes walked away from
what could have been a tragic circumstance. The car obsorbed the collision and the driver seat
collaped backwards as designed which practically eliminated any serious injuries. We were truely
blessed and thankful for a well designed safety oriented Ford vehicle! The car had a full tank of
gas and even after 16 hours not a single drop of fuel leaked from the car.
If the pics do not appear (as they sometimes do when I post them in blogs) then go to my photo library.
