Glad to hear you guys are all right.

Seriously, what is it with some people and their need to get wherever they're going in such a goddamn hurry? I had someone ride my ass all the way home tonight on a partially icy road. What the ****, y'know?

Yeah definitely good to hear everyone is ok overall. Hopefully karma will get the ******* who hit you and get him good. A coronary would do the trick.

I'm glad to hear your ok, Scott. Hearing about experiences like that make me cautious as a young driver, especialy a learner.

Wow - How fast do they think he was going Scott?

And may I recommend a Honda Pilot as a replacement? Nice and tall, 3rd row... side curtain airbags....

As soon as we get some cash we're going to pick one up.

That's a nasty looking wreck, alright.  He must've really run the red good (late), to hit you that far back on your car.   :-\

How's your noggin Scott?  Still hazy, or are your senses finally coming back now?

Still pretty foggy actually, could be from the medication they put me on though

My back and shoulders are still messed up as well but each day the pain is going down so hopefully its all gone in a few days

Good news is that we'll get our insurance money tomorrow...bad news is, I forsee this in the Pearson garage:



I'd say we were going around 40...he was probably doing 40-50

I still have no recollection of the accident, just hearing my boys crying in the back seat of the car and sirens.  I'm almost positive that my head hit the seat belt thingee above my left shoulder.  I've seen the wreck twice now and its a true miracle all three of us are here.

Sign of the apocalypse, right there, a minivan.  Oh sure, it's a Toyota.  It could be a Honda, no matter, it's pure evil.  All the drawbacks of an SUV, none of the benefits.  Gas guzzling abomination thrust upon this earth.  The ultimate sign of giving up and conforming.  At what point did children suddenly command/need to have 80 cubic feet each? 

Oh.  Have I said I hate minivans? :-*  Soccer Dad.

I've seen worse mini-vans. Last time I bought a car in the cities (1997) I actually went to Mankato. I played all the local Honda dealers against each other so badly they finally hit "bottom". I still wanted to play, so I phoned the dealer in 'kato who happily dropped another respectable chunk from the price.

Good luck, and I'm glad you're all alright (again).

I actually hadn't visited this thread until I saw the "farewell" thread this morning.  Although this might be somewhat of a repeat of what I typed over there, I do want to say that I'm very happy to hear that all three of you are ok, at least as good as can be expected.  So sorry to hear about this accident (and about the minivan :-*), but it is a blessing from above that all three of you came out of this alright.  All the best to all of you in your recovery, and to trying to put the accident behind you.  I'm sure, aside from the injuries, it was an experience you'd like to soon forget.

Also, as others have mentioned, this really angers me with all the crappy drivers out there nowadays.  Always riding you from behind, people running red lights like crazy, driving too fast in bad conditions...just a combination of things that increasingly frustrates me every day.  This is actually our first year of living in a "city", and I've noticed more than ever now.  Just terrible drivers nowadays, and they are the reason stuff like this happens.  Anyways....take care buddy, and glad to hear the boys are ok too.

I also just heard about your accident.  I'm glad to hear your family is going to be fine.  I hope things work out for you and you still stop in here to check in and let us know how things are going.
