2001 Focus Saved My Life

I had a 2001 Focus 4 door. I just wanted to say thank you to you and your company for building such a safe car. I was involved in an accident on May 8, 2014. I was headed to work at 6:30 am, driving in the far right lane. A car suddenly appeared in front of me, going left to right. (I found out later that the person driving the car was attempting to make an exit ramp from the lane to my left). We were both going the posted speed limit of 65 mph. I had no choice but to “brake and hold”. After the impact I managed to coast to the highway shoulder. I was relieved and amazed that I got out and was not injured…(only a slight burn to my right wrist from the airbag). The person driving the other car was taken to the hospital and is now ok. Again, I want to say thank you and God Bless you and Ford Motor Company and all of its employees for me and my wife and three daughters for building this fine automobile and saving my life. My wife drives a fusion and 2 of my 3 daughters drive focuses. I am going to purchase a fusion soon. Please pass this on to whom it may concern. I’ve been telling everyone I know at work and elsewhere to buy a Ford product, because it saved my life. Again, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you….a thousand times Thank you and God bless. Sincerely, Dave Kurrus and family, Argyle, Texas.
