Well, maybe not life, but it did save me from any serious injury. You see, today after leaving school, I was on my way to a body shop to get estimates on my door where someone hit me while I was parked. As I was going down the right turn lane to turn on the highway, passing a long line of stopped cars as I went, a gap opened up and guess what emerged. A big red and white ambulance. Then guess what happened. I slammed into the side of it. Yup, that's right. I hit an ambulance. It wasn't a government ambulance on a call though. It was owned by a private company and was going to pick up some old lady. Well, the entire front portion of my car is crushed, the spare tire in the trunk came loose and pushed down the back seats so it was right behind me, and all in all the car is totaled. A few things to note, however: This crash happened between 25-30 MPH when I hit the ambulance, the air bags never deployed, and I have no injury whatsoever. Nope. Not a scratch or a bump. Someone in the passenger seat complained of back injuries, but X-Rays revealed nothing major. The ticket I got was your standard "Speed in excess of that which is reasonable," even though they have no evidence proving that, it's just kind of something they have to give you. The other driver got a "Failing to yield the right of way," and I believe the courts will find him to be at fault. Well, that's my Volvo story for the day. You can bet that my next car will be a Volvo. Note to Volvo Cars of North America, LLC and anybody else: Feel free to use this story, just not my name.
