    I saw this the other day; ashhat backing out of parking spot while choking on burger and holding cell phone to ear, what's he got 3 arms? CPs are a menace, I rarely see a woman without one glued to her head, it gives new creadance to the term 'woman driver'. Worse than women are the men who are so self involved that puting down the CP would shatter thier egos. I actually had a manly-man get angry at me because he was trying to pull out into heavy traffic while on his Precious Cell Phone, he failed to notice me and my deisel PU less that 10 feet away from him and nearly hit me! He never set down his phone, I guess he was busy saving the world or something.

    Big Saw,

    You went "ABCD", Above and Beyond the Call of Duty.

    You're one of the reasons that this forum is so great.

    You're one of the "Good Guys"!

    And Good Guys always attract enemies.

    Evil always tries to destroy goodness.

    But you are much better than that.

    The Light does not tolerate the darkness.

    You are a shining example of what is good.

    Thank you.

    Lesson Learned

    I have started driving MUCH more carefully since I broke my car in half in 2002. I wasn't speeding but the road a wet from a light rain and i skidded off the raod into the woods. Evrything from the firewall back stayed in the woods. Firewall forward was 50ft away in the road. I walked away with only a bruised left ulna.
    God waws watching out for me that day.:)

She's stable and in excellent condition, considering her injuries, and is coherent and very thankful to be alive....
    I think she was very lucky. Hopefully she won't make that mistake again.

The people who did belt up are just banged up or are trying to help their friends or loved ones.
    Yes...I think the latest statistics are something like over 85% of TAs which involve rollovers or airborne vehicles in which restraints are unused resut in either partial or total ejection of occupants.....of those ejected, nearly 65% are fatal, and neary 30% are severly injured, causeing lifelong debilitation.

    Should you get a ticket for not wearing your belt? Nah. Just an "I'm an idiot" bumper sticker. Remember this: This woman crossed the oncoming lane in this event at over 80MPH....she coud very wel have met oncoming traffic, but was fortunate not to. Someone who wasn't driving like an idiot could just as easily been involved. It doesn't have to be your fault to be your funeral.

    Buckle up, guys...and drive safe.

    I think we might have one more safe driver out there when it's all said and done...;)
    She had decided to leave her 2y/o girl w/the grandparents while she went on an errand....all I can say to that is: Whatever you choose to call Him, there most definitely is a god....

    So, what you are saying is you have pics of the vic, but if one is to ask to see them, it is wrong in your eyes? What does it say about the one who TOOK the pictures in the first place? Dont play the line "evidence". Hmmmm, can you say hypocrite???
    Well, now that you've given me the opportunity to make you look stupid, here's your lesson for today:

    * I am a Nationally Registerd EMT-I CCFM, and am bound to patient confidentiality...that means that I can either divulge a person's identity, or their injuries, but not both. You'll notice that neither the vic's name, nor her likeness were displayed in my post, therefor I'm absolutely free do divulge details about her injuries, as well as the particulars of the scene.

    * I volunteered my photographs as a service to the Crawford County Sheriff's Office for the purpose of evidence and signed a chain of evidence form, as well as a record of duplicate, and was given permission by the OIC to release the above photos to the local press, and to publish them for my own purposes.

    * I visited the woman in question (who's life my wife and I saved, mind you) at the trauma center today and introduced myself, talked for about 2 hrs, and am reasonably assured that my decision to share the experience with you, for your benefit had her utmost blessing. And I happened to have probably made a friend for life....

    And all you can do is call me a hypocrite?

    Boo on you, Man....you miss up on a valuable life-lesson to make some dumb crack that you probably didn't even think out very well......boo.

    If you drive fast to get there quicker.....you should have left earlier!!! If you don't wear a seatbelt you can be ejected...or pinned in.
    I think the choice to buckle up should be your own..better safe than sorry!
    Too bad there are so many dumb ass folks in the world who think they have the ''right'' to go barrelling ass down the road with no concern of others.Seems only fitting for some of them to ''pay'' for their own F-ups.
    The trouble being those who are innocent victims.
