Default Sobering thoughts on Mother'* Day (With Pics).

Thought I'd share a little bit of my Mother'* Day with everyone. A few reasons really...

1. This X-Trail held up really well (literally)!
2. STOP at a STOP sign. Pay attention to what'* around you. The truck driver admittedly failed to stop even though he knew there was a sign there. "... must have been in my blind spot". T-Bone at a marked intersection with the car passing directly in front during daylight hours. (Things that make you say Hmmm...)
3. Probably the most important... Family. Did you call your mom yesterday? Things can change in an instant. Kind of makes you never want to miss those special days with those we love.

I left a lot out because this forum isn't the place for horrific or graphic photos. The sad part was this individuals mom was at the scene as crews worked for near an hour to get the driver out. The best part... from initial assessments, this driver only suffered a broken leg.

This post is not meant to be controvertial or bring about upsetting emotions in those who see it. It is merely to drive home how important our famiy and friends are, never to forget it and to stay safe. Sometimes are actions hurt others around us even more.

Wow that'* quite the accident. Everyone survived then? It'* hard to imagine the driver only having a broken leg with the driver'* area looking like it does.

When we first arrived and approaced, all we saw was the truck parked where the driver should be. I really didn't think there was going to be much for us to do. I'm really happy this wasn't the case. There was only a single occupant in each vehicle.
