Great to hear about a few scratches and probably a couple bruises. Like you said, much better than being in the hospital.

NO it was his car ,my old one was a dark green 93.The reason for the wreak was most likely ,going to fast on wet roads,an tires being worn out.AND lak of experience.He'* 17.

I'm OLD, and you're member #34. I could have sworn you had a white car at one time. Just making sure the white curse didn't strike again.

Glad your spawn is ok. Valuable lesson, good to learn with minor injuries only.

Yes, glad your son is OK. That is one of a parent'* worst fears when your children are still teenagers, the late night phone call...

Tough way for him to learn that the number one and two most important mechanical items, IMO, are brakes and tires. Almost everything else can take a back seat, so to speak.
