Summer Drunk

While clearing trees for a gentleman we thoroughly enjoyed using our 2007 Ford F 150 to commute to and from the field and to pull trees into the burn pile we’d been cutting. On a leisure drive to town to fill up we were stopped at a red light…3pm sitting there enjoying the company of my wife and our two black labs. We were hit from behind by a drunk driver and slammed into the middle of the interesction. Thankfully no one involved was hurt. I just wanted to say though, that i am extremely proud of how the Ford held up. The guy that hit us was driving a brand new Chevy 2500 (still had intransit plates) and failed to even touch the brakes. He was going around 55mph when he crashed into us. As i was saying about being so proud….the bed of by truck took the entire blunt force, we were hit so square on even the tail lights weren’t broken. Needless to say I was a Ford fan before and will only entrust my family’s well being including my brand new baby girl to nothing but a Ford! Thanks for all you do!

We would love to be able to watch and or Follow our new Edge being built online here in Orlando, FL. On January 22, 2014 we were struck by a drunk driver, hitting us on the passenger side back door where our 20 month old was sitting in his car seat. Because of the way the Edge was built it saved our son. I am including proof of how well our Edge was built and how wonderful the way She (Our Edge A.K.A Blue) held up. The drunk driver that slammed into us also decided to Run not caring if he hurt or killed anyone. Drunk driver was tracked down by a witness but was not arrested.Because of the way our 2013 Ford Edge Limited held up and did in fact keep all of Her passengers Safe My wife and I have decided to induct another 2014 Ford Edge Limited with EcoBoost Ruby Red into our family. And will remain Ford Customer's for Life.Thank You So Much FordJayson, Summer, Zachary, & Zander.
