  • 15 years ago tonight (Dec 26th '99) marks the night I almost died at the hands of someone else's stupidity...

    ...but I miraculously survived

    (broken right femur, 2 fractured vertebra, severe concussion, and spent a week in the hospital)

    Yep. Dude was drunk with his wife and 2 kids, in a minivan, drifted over the center lane, hit a guard rail, bounced back into my lane and struck me pretty much head on at 60mph-60mph. Luckily the impact was more on the passenger front side of my CRX because It gave me just that little amount of space within my car to not get the full brunt force of a direct head on. Split second later or split second sooner and the outcome would have been drastically different.

  • Good advice.
    Had a friend die 25 years ago because of a drunk driver running from the cops on a motorcycle, my friend was driving a big old boat (I think it was a cadallic) got hit by the bike in the door as he was turning left. The bike had some illegal head light that was impossible for others to see. The bike had a passenger on it, and was going about 75mph, both people on the bike died, my friend Dan did as well and his friend in the passenger seat was Really messed up.

    It's the reason I don't drink a lot unless I'm at home, some place I can stay, or on vacation. It's not worth the risk to others or myself.
