Well, I hope that none of you ever experience what I did tonight. A 40+mph offset front collision.<P>I was on my way out to meet a friend tonight and a woman made a left turn without looking directly in my path. All I could do was try to minimize what was about to happen. Luckily I was able to avoid the total head-on and I managed to move just enough to the right to contact mainly on the left front of my car which sent me up on to the curb and nearly into some people waiting to cross the street. A friend is taking me to get a rental car tomorrow and I will go to the wrecking yard to take pictures which I will post. From what I saw before I got in the ambulance, it was not pretty. Volvo bits all over the street...<P>This woman and several kids in the car with her and they had no seatbelts on. One kid hit the windshield, I don't know what ultimately happened with him. I have only a swollen left wrist, elbow and my back hurts some. In all, I was very fortunate to have walked away from this. Volvo safety is no joke.
