I was sitting at a red light on 10/09/11 about 8:30 p.m. The light turned green and I proceeded only to be broadsided on the driver side by a Nissan large SUV. I had to be extracted by the LPFD and rushed to the closest trauma center where I spent six days.
My injuries consist of eight fractured ribs, bluni injury of abdomen, blunt chest trauma, and blunt chest trauma. Recovery is suppose to be twelve weeks.
My blue 2007 Ford Focus station wagon was deemed totaled out but it saved my life.
Safety was not the main reason for purchasing the car so I am excited that Ford takes it very seriously.
