I was the proud owner of 2007 Ford Edge SEL and traveling to work on 12/19/09 in a major snow storm when I was struck by a 18 wheeler that lost control in the snow. I saw it coming and I couldn’t get away but my side impact airbags did there job and despite the fact that I was hit at 45mph by a vehicle much bigger than mine my daughter and I walked away from the accident with just some sore muscles and whip lash. It was truly a Christmas miracle because the entire side of the car was crushed and everyone that saw the pictures I posted on my facebook page cannot even believe that we are here to tell the story. When I made my way home that night to see my family I just had to take time to hug each of my children and my wife and tell them how much I love them and how grateful I am to be here today. I have to say that I will scream it from the roof tops this is the safest, best handling car that I ever owned and I will definitely be purchasing another one once the insurance company has settled everything. I tear up every time I think about how the car saved my life.
