And They Survived

My father and my 2 nieces were involved in a head on collision; where another driver crossed the middle line and came into their lane. Everyone in the focus had been wearing seatbelts which prevented death. My older niece sustained several fractured bones and was the worse of the injuries for the impact was on the front passenger side as you can see from the picture below. Because of the way the car was designed, it took the force of the impact. Thank you for building the car to a high safety standard. I still have my dad and nieces.

Andrew i can attest to the focus being under estimated, i hit a deer going about 40 in my '02 Focus and all i had to do was bend the metal back, hood looks a bit rough but past that its free of damage, and to the story im happy to see that if i take a head on hit i will survive! haha!

A 2003 Ford Focus saved my sister and I in a pretty bad accident once too. I'm glad everyone survived your ordeal. Ford does make some very safe cars.

It's a good thing she didn't buy a Chevy, because they crumble like tin foil. You did it again Ford.

the ford focus is such an underestimated car when it comes to accidents! Ill keep true to them as long as Ford keeps stamping them out!

What an amazing story!! A Focus saved my sister in a similar accident I know what you mean about being thankful for Ford"s high safety standards. She loved that car so much she ended up getting a brand new one.
