My stepbrother was in a car crash today... [View all]

...He was on the 405 freeway here in SoCal going to work this morning, traffic slowed, and an SUV going a significant rate of speed rear ended him while he was at a dead stop. He was knocked unconscious and woke up to paramedics cutting off his close and asking him the basic questions. He was taken to the hospital and X-Rays and CAT scan were done. He's going to make it through with a concussion, some bruising, and a small liver laceration. *finger-cross*

We do not know the condition of the driver who hit him, other than that they were taken to a hospital. His car was totaled. He is alive because he was wearing his seat belt and his airbag deployed. Today I am thankful for those life-saving technologies, for our first responders, and for the hardworking men and women that staff our hospitals.

Drive safe, and buckle up.
