Accidents Happen

Recently, a man was brought in to the ER to see me, who had been in a car crash and was pretty banged up.  His pickup truck was hit head on by another vehicle.  He repeatedly stated how lucky he was that he was in his 6000 pound truck and that it probably saved his life.  Nevertheless, he had significant injuries, fractures, cuts and abrasions and the truck was completely totalled.  I asked him what kind of car hit him.


“It was an old lady in a Subaru,” he said. 

“Wow, what happened to her?” I asked, assuming she had been flown to another hospital.

“Oh she walked away,” he said, clearly perturbed that she was uninjured despite her tree-hugger car.
