whoa.

Count me in on the "SUVs are unsafe" bandwagon. Last night, as Nate and I were walking to our car from a wedding reception, we heard this bang, turned around, and saw the following: a station wagon skid crazily through the intersection, and an SUV skid sideways, fly, and flip over and land upside down. It was probably one of the scariest things I've ever seen (and remember, I once hit a guy on a motorcycle). That SUV was so heavy, and must have been going pretty fast, to get air like that. Yikes. If I'm ever in the market to buy an SUV, I will check that crash test rating pretty seriously.

Wow, I've never even seen a car accident take place, much less one that involves a car flipping over. I hope you recover from the trauma of watching that.

i have some shrapnel from a car accident lodged in my cheek. i was driving and to my left these cars just collided terribly and a miniscule plastic fragment was suddenly lodged in my cheek; it flew in through my window. and now... i'll never be a teen model. never.

I too watched an SUV flip over three times in the median next to me on I-94 once. I thought that only happened in movies.

Paul you could never be a teen model because you're no longer a teen.

When did you hit a guy on a motorcycle? I need more on that.

Amanda creamed a guy on a Ninja. She didn't see him until he was "rolling across her hood."
