Two days ago my girlfriend and I were in a head on collision with a distracted driver. We were in her Jaguar XF on a two lane road and a Honda Odyssey Van came right into us. We were doing 45 mph and the witnesses said he was doing 60-65. There was zero time to avoid the accident. My gf now has two broken arms a broken rib and a broken kneecap. I dislocated and broke two fingers. I truly thought were were going to die. In the back seat was a friend being treated for stage 4 cancer. She broke her sternum. The Jag however crumpled perfectly and between that and the air bags saved our lives. My girlfriend had to be removed from the car with the Jaws of Life. The driver of the other vehicle admitted fault and said there were papers flying around and he was trying to retrieve them. This truly pisses me off. I thought I had lost the love of my life after being apart for 37 years then getting back together. Now all of our plans for this summer and beyond are done. She’s home and in considerable pain.
