Mother’s Day 2013 turned into the most memorable mother’s day for our family to date. My parents were in their F-150 truck pulling a trailer with all of my belongings (I was moving home from school). As they went to pass a semi-truck near Drummond, Montana, the trailer began to wobble. Driving behind them, my sister, my brother, my sister-in-law, and I watched as the trailer lifted the truck into the air, flipped it, and then both the truck and the trailer landed and rolled on the side of the freeway. We believed we had just watched our parents die or at least receive serious injury.

But, within a minute of the accident both of my parents walked away with only scratches and a couple broken ribs. That beast of a truck gave its life and saved my parents. The pictures don’t do the miracle justice, but we believe that the truck was one of the reasons we still have our parents.

Within 2 weeks my father purchased the same truck in the new model year. We have always been and will always be a Ford Family. Thank you.

Anthony D Insurence companies put a price on the vehicle after the accident so they can write it off. But no one can put a price on what these trucks give there owners. Be it a couple years of servie, a couple more years with your parents. Ford trucks are built stronger to last longer, and perform better then expected.
