Well I worked the night shift from 4-12 pm. My buddy picked me up from work. We went to Mcdonalds had some apple pies then he was going to drive me home. Well I decided to recline in my seat and 2 minuted later. Half a sleep all I hear is Oh ****!!! and I look to see a honda odessey. well Guess what happend next.

Yes I was the lucky one in the passenger seat. Since I was reclined all I got was a bump on the head and a bruised knee. The driver (my buddy ) had a face full of airbag. After it happend and I saw smoke (either from the Airbags or from burning wires) and barked at him to get out. I walked about twenty feet made sure I was ok and turned around to see above. From what I can tell My buddy made a left and the light which was turning red so he went ahead and didn't wait thinking the other guy in the van would stop. Well he didn't . I am just happy that damn car held me in one piece. My buddy is ok But he is banged up and has a lightly collapased lung. Just takes time to heal . I just had to share this with everyone because people kept asking why I was unhurt, All
I could answer was " that is american made" . Any how I am fine

(p.*. Sorry Morthel I didn't call you this weekend. I will PM you later )
