Durability Of E-350 Head On Collision With An 18 Wheeler
JUN
28

Hello My name is Forrest Brown. In Jan. 2008 I was involved in an accident (on the job carrying paint to cabinet shops) involving an head on collision with an 18 Wheeler at 55-60 MPH. I was in the hospital for 4 months. I had a brain injury. My left arm is fused at the elbow and also lost my left leg. But I am alive and well.

It has been a long road to recovery. My family keeps me going, Im married with 3 kids 2, 9, 16. I do not drive a ford as my personal vehicle because im in a workers comp case and cant afford one, but Ford vehicles are very durable. To get hit head on by an 18 Wheeler at 55-60 mph and survive says alot about the durability and strength of the Ford vehicles. My next car will definately be a ford.

I want to thank the Ford Motor Company for the durability of this vehicle. IT SAVED MY LIFE!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
