Re: Air bag saved my wife this week!

Glad your wife is OK man!

Purely out of curiosity, does she remember how fast she was going when they collided?

Based on the damage I would estimate around 50MPH...

It's great that your wife came through it without more injury. Here's to a fast recovery.

I hope she was wearing clean underwear when it happend... anyone know why the older generation were always thinking it was imperative to be be wearing clean underwear if you get in an accident? Chances are they won't be clean after impact no matter how spring fresh and spotless they were before.

Re: Air bag saved my wife this week!

My wife says that she was going 40-45MPH. She says this because the speed limit changes less than 1/4 mile from where she was hit. She drives this road a few times a week and knows where the speed limit changes.

Re: Air bag saved my wife this week!

By all rights, I should have been dead once and seriously injured (at minimum) another time...

What saved me was the superior engineering of my Toyota T100.

The truck was rebuilt both times and runs great today. In fact, it feels brand new. And I walked away both times. I had bruised arms from the air bag but that was it.

Small wonder that I buy nothing but Toyota...

Re: Air bag saved my wife this week!

Hope she heals soon! Give her a hug every day, it could have been much worse!

Buy her an FJ, may not get the same MPG, but it should take a big hit. I always get rear-ended, I'm always stopped and they never have insurance. I went to a bigger unit!

Good luck! Get well Soon!
