The accident I was involved in with my wife and 12 y/o daughter happened on March 5, 2003 at 9:20 PM, a mere 6 hours after I took delivery of my very first brand new car ! I picked up the car, a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire, about 3:30 earlier that day, came home and got the family to go for the obligatory drive in the new car. We took a drive up the Fraser Canyon to Hope for dinner at McDonalds, and then drove back home through Agassiz to our home in Chilliwack. My wife then went down for a nap before I drove her to work ( graveyard shift...).
We all hopped in the car when it was time to drive mom to work, and got about 2 blocks from home, when an impaired driver that was tail-gating a vehicle coming toward me, turned left right across my path. I never even saw the vehicle until it turned across in front of me. There was nothing to do but hang on and hope for the best !
Both vehicles were travelling at about 50 kmh, we were all wearing our seatbelts, but the other driver wasn't. We collided so hard, the other car was turned back around the direction it was coming from. The other driver of course hit his steering column, and actually bent the column upwards. After I had checked my family, I went to his car and found him sitting in the footwell on the passenger side of his car. He was pretty beat up, but otherwise ok, thankfully.
Both cars were total losses as you can see, mine having only 163 km on the odometer ! I don't know how the other fellow is doing since the crash, but myself and family are all slowly but surely healing from seatbelt injuries and whiplash. Always remember to wear your seatbelts ! They DO save lives !!
