    Seat belt saved my life!!!!

    I had the same type of accident years ago. I had time to think, "their not stopping". Never got my foot off the gas. Van did a 360 and she was pushed about 100' strait forward. Door popped open and the seat belt held me in. Broken ribs, knees blown out, 6 months out of work.

    Truck was totaled and the passenger door on the car that hit me was pushed just about into their drivers seat. They medivaced her out in a helicopter.

    The seat belt kept me from flying out the door into 50 MPH traffic. It saved my life, it gets buckled up before the truck or vehicle ever moves every time I travel.
    Your poor planning does not constitute an emergency on my part!!!!

    It's actually good that the front of the van is that tore up, the more the van crinkles the less energy you absorb. Course, a good cattle guard and maybe you would have just had to pry her car out of your grill lol.

    That sucks about the ticket for sure!

    BTW, I have a lil something for you to tell your boss... well I'll tell you a story and you can modify it to fit your needs.

    I got in a wreck several years ago in a company vehicle, of course had to go take the pee pee test. Came back to the office after and told the boss "I failed the piss test". Where I worked, it wouldn't be a huge surprise, but his eyes got huge and you could tell he was getting mad. Then I said "I missed the cup the 1st time." I had tears rolling down my face from laughin so hard at his reactions. Thankfully he had a good sense of humor!

    "she wasn't there and then she was there brakes what brakes , prepare for ramming speed."

    that has me rolling. I keep imagining william shatner saying it for some reason.

    would love to see if the back of your van is any worse now than the ones at the supply houses these days.

    They need to find a way to economically add some type of crumple zones on the full size trucks and vans without losing functionality. Glad you weren't hurt and didn't kill the other driver. Full size trucks are like having a brick wall comming at you. Not your fault... just saying.

    I'll step off my soap box.

    Totaled??? well, ya, looks like some major frame damage... and thsoe air bags are pretty pricey to replace. .

    I believe that came from the movie Animal House at the end when they modified that lincoln into some sort of birthday cake that said eat me and then the driver said prepare for ramming speed.

    All Ford vans have a crumple zone built into the first 10" of the frame, crawl underneath and look at the frame rail behind the bumper, I am sure Chevys do as well.
