Thank You Ford Engineers!

We take so many things for granted these days…thank you Ford for letting me and my family stay together! At the start of this Easter weekend, I was squarely hit by a red-light runner going full speed. Timing is everything and thank God I had just dropped off the youngest two of my three boys at preschool. The other truck hit me square on the driver side yet I walked away with minor bruising. The engine compartment took the brunt of the impact and my beloved 2004 F150 is no longer.

The incident hit close to home for my wife. Her father died from complications from an accident before she was born. He left her mother, pregnant with her, to raise 3 kids by herself. Luckily for my family, your dedication to safety has prevented a repeat story for my wife and three kids. Pulling three car seats, stuffed animals, etc out of the truck prior to being towed to the salvage yard was surreal but the lack of serious injuries was a blessing. The other driver was illegally in the US and uninsured which complicates the issue of replacing the vehicle but that is a minor issue compared to what could have happened. I am not sure what the future holds but thank you for allowing a future to happen.
