      dont drink and drive!

      i put all pics on my cardomain site since nothing else would host them so go here for the pics pics of accident

      heres the story...
      On halloween this year i was driving to an offroad rec park with a few of my friends and 7 in the morning. We were going around a bend on a two land hiway when out of nowhere a drunk driving a silverado came sliding into my lane going about 80 mph and hit me head on. I was going about 30 - 30 at the poing of impact so when we hit it was an impact of well over 100 mph. My girlfriend and i had a few broken bones and some severe lacerations on us but its been almost two months since the accident and we are both doing fine and will make complete recoveries. As for the people in the silverado, the driver died on impact, the guy passenger had a compound break in his femur with multiple severe lacerations all over him and several other broken bones, the other girl passenger slipped into a coma and died a week later due to swelling of the brain. Not quite sure how my girlfriend and I are still here but we are and were doing ok. I just bought another explorer a few weeks ago since my last one did so well in the accident and im gonna be doing a lot of work to it in the next few weeks..

      I don't understand how this thread rocks, considering 2 people died. This is only good in that the sober ones came out alive, typically the drunk driver lives and kills all the innocent people. I would like to see some pictures though. Sounds like a terrible incident.

      It is good to know you and your chick made it okay.

      These and plenty of other stories with photos assue me that me and my passengers in my Explorers are safe. I don't know about the Firestone lawsuit, but it seems to me that these trucks protect their passengers extremely well. Like ask BBQ Hotdogs.

      OMG!! That's a horrible accident.. Lucky for you and your girlfriend cause most drunk drivers never die in accidents; they usually kill everyone else..How old was the driver?

      Looking at the Silverado, I could see how the driver didn't survive. Very glad to see you made it out safe. It's impressive to see that you did. It's amazing how many people on this board have walked away from some scary accidents that, had they been driving something else, they might not have survived.

      WOW! Someone was smiling down on you and your girlfriend. Between your and BBQ's experiences, I think it is quite apparent just how safe Explorers are. Best wishes for a continued speedy recovery and happy trails with the new Ex!
