In January 2008 i was driving the truck in winter and lost control. Before I knew it I was facing a bus in a head-on collision. As you can see from the picture the truck was badly damaged. It was classified as a 100mph crash. I was traveling at 40 and the bus was at 60 mph. The amazing part fo this story is that I am still alive. When Ford says “Built Ford Tough” they mean it. That truck is what saved my life. it collapsed exactly how it was designed to do. It created a cocoon around me and protected me from the crash. I managed to walk away from the accident with 11 broken ribs, a fractured strenum and a collapsed lung, but I was alive. My injuries were caused by the air bag, but it could have been worse. After the accident we bought another 1999 F-250 and we now own a 2011 F-350. As Ford says “Built Ford Tough”.
