Ford Engineering Saved My Father
JUN
06

We are so thankful for my Father’s F150 this week and all the amazing emergency staff. On his way over to be babysitter for the day to his 1 1/2 year old granddaughter, he was involved in a terrible accident. Another driver ran a clearly marked stopped sign. My father’s F150 stuck the side of their vehicle at around 50 miles an hour.

The Air Bag, Seatbelt and a Well-Designed vehicle allowed my father to exit the truck on his own and wait for help to arrive. Both the passenger and driver’s side areas seemed untouched. The frontend absorbed the tremendous blow and reacted just as it had been designed, AMAZING.

I am so proud of my father and everything he stands for. He does so much for everyone around him and never asks for anything in return. He has owned Fords all his life and has already made plans to reach out to his favorite Ford Salesman, whom his worked with for over 15 years, to buy his next FORD.
Keep making ‘em FORD TOUGH.
