Shanna Is OK But It Looks Like We Need A New Car!

As a result of an unfortunate accident it  looks like  we need a new car.  This past week my wife was in a serious accident with our 2011 Subaru Outback.  While Shanna is OK, the car is not.  From what I understand Shanna had difficulty exiting an off-ramp, got up against the guard rail, then rolled over the guard rail, and ended up against a chain link fence.  The pictures of the accident included in this post came from the Milford Daily News.

Shanna and I are very thankful to local good Samaritans who rushed to help get Shanna out of the car.  At some point the car somehow caught fire, so it was a scary situation.  Those people who came to Shanna’s rescue were very brave!

Shanna was taken to the hospital where they check her over and then released her in a couple of hours.  She has a mark on her neck caused by the shoulder belt and she is a little sore from the rough ride.

The Subaru Outback was a good car and Shanna particularly liked it.  It looks like we might need to get a new one!

    Glad she was alright.

    • Thanks Jim. I was in Miami on business when this happened, so Shanna had to deal with a lot of this on her own. Fortunately my daughter, Laura and her husband, Mike, were able to give Shanna some direct support and help her get back home. They were a big help.
