On Thursday, October 21st, my husband was driving my fathers 1998 Crown Vicotria. (Our personal vehicle was in the shop for repairs) Needless to say, we were driving down the highway, with my 3 children, myself, and a friend. For some unknown reason, a man in a white pick-up pulled out in front of us while we were going at a rate of 65mph,(come to find out he was a drunk driver). My husband slammed on the breaks but it was too late. Next thing I know we hit the pick-up and spun in the highway. Luckily, by the Grace of God, we all lived. Our injuries include, airbag burn, seatbelt burn, whiplash and a broken ankle. However, I know without a doubt that the size and strenth of that car was a blessing. My point is, in looking at the cars made recently I see that everyone is concerned about the environment. What about safety? The vehicle in the shop is my 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan. I hit a deer a week before going 40mph. It was enough damage that it was not safe to drive. What if we had been in that van in this collision? What if we were in an environment friendly car? I just want to say thank you to Ford for making a durable car. But will you continue?
