Great Engineering Saves Lives

A drunk driver ran a red light and hit my driver front panel at 45 mph. He destroyed the front of the vehicle and spun it around 180 degrees. Other than soft tissue injuries to neck and ribcage and a bumped knee, the only injury I received was a broken rib. I truly believe that if I had been in a less well engineered car that I would have been much more gravely injured. The side airbag deployed and saved me from head injuries. I didn't even get a bruise from the seatbelt. This may not sound like much to the more resilient youngsters out there, but I'm 61. I'm grateful to Ford for quality safety standards and will continue to commit to buying Ford.
