A picture says a thousand words



I was in the passenger seat so I took most of the impact. Air has a line of blue across his belly where the seatbelt hit him. And his neck hurts. The kids have welts on their shoulders where their seatbelts were, Thank God. And I am purple everywhere my seatbelt touched, plus my knee which hit the front of the car. The airbags worked and felt like pillow. And we all walked (I ran holding my five-year-old) away from the crash. We were rushed by ambulance to the nearest hospital where my aunt met us and took care of us. The doctors were great and we were released within 3 hours.

Just for your info, Air was not at fault. We had a green and the cross-street's light wasn't working. The other driver just kept going and ended up in front of us suddenly. We hit her broadside on her passenger side. She also walked away from the scene.

By the way, this was at 6:30 a.m. on our way back from the airport where D and I arrived from Prague.

Oh my G-d, Veev, you all must be in shul on Shabbat for air to say HaGomel!! My daughter was in a rehab hospital recently (B"H she is doing well, someday Ill tell you the story) and we saw so much suffering from car accidents like this....I'm so glad your injuries are all relatively minor. Take time to rest, recover and count your blessings from G-d...

I am glad to hear that you are all, Baruch Hashem, okay. It reminds me of what happened to us (refer to past Mort report). Please have a refuah shelama (sp?).

Thank G-d you're all alright. Tell Air he should take care to get his neck checked out. Pesach in Detroit in 2002, I got into a bad accident making a left from Southfield onto Lincoln. Some guy ran a red light when I was making the turn, and I swiped him also. I didn't realize that I hurt my neck at the time. But, I've had problems with it ever since.

I'm so glad you all are okay. Hoping you're all feeling better and less bruised soon. How are the kids emotionally? It's not an easy thing to go through.

Yeah, I was wondering if you remembered that one! Well, I've, thank G-d, only had 2 accidents. That one was very minor compared to the other one.
