Thank You Ford For Saving My Father!

My dad was involved in a recent accident and explosion on RT 1 in Saugus MA. A tanker truck carrying 11,000 gallons of gasoline hit the median and the gasoline spilled into the road. My dad was driving home from work and was in the middle of a road filled with gasoline before he knew what was going on. He skidded through it and colided with the cab of the tanker truck. He was engulfed in flames but able to get out of his vehicle and to safety. He suffered 3rd degree burns on over 50% of his body and has had complications through his recovery process he is alive. Though all of our lives will be for ever changed by that event, with the feeding tube and oxygen my dad is already talking about his next Ford truck. Thank you Ford for building a vehicle that is tough on a level that no vehicle should have to be.
