Early morning (1/2 hr. before sunrise) along rural roads of central Pennsylvania; taking my boys to ice hockey games as is my usual saturday morning.

A northbound intoxicated driver hit a pole; sheared it; causing it to land on my hood as we drive southbound. The beam across the engine; flips the pole over the car as we continue under.

We stop. We are ok, so I drive and pull over. I briefly speak to the other driver, he is out of the car; not injured. As the sun rises; we assess damage; the front is untouched- except for what these two brackets on the pole smashed; the hood crushed; and one bracket split the roof over my son's head.

Without that design, the pole takes the roof and our heads off...

...Teammates pickup up the boys and I drive home.

Two weeks later; I'm in another V70...

Thank You Volvo !

Wonderful result! I'd be in another v70 too. When defensive driving isn't enough, best to be in a Volvo. Glad you and the boys are fine!
