'08 Accord Coupe of TOV member is hit by F-150 traveling 100+mph, TOV member walks away

I received the following e-mail and attached photos from a TOV member who wanted to share his story of Honda's "safety for everyone".


Jeff,

I hope you are doing well. I have been an active member of TOV for years, under the email *********@comcast.net. I have owned many Hondas and I have converted my entire family into Honda owners. I have a 2008 Accord Coupe EX in Alabaster Silver. I bought it as a second vehicle for my commute car as I drive over 40,000 miles per year. Last Thursday I was driving home from Thanksgiving dinner and was hit from behind on the interstate by a truck traveling in excess of 100mph. I was going about 74 from what I remember. I wanted to share these pictures with you of the wreck. I flipped over 4 times according to police. The first officer arriving on scene warned other emergency personnel arriving that it was most likely a fatality wreck. Little did he know I was crawling out through the back window. I am not sure if you wanted to share this with other members of TOV who share the same passion you and I do about Honda. This is a testament to their safety and the ACE Body Structure. I walked away from this with a few minor bruises on my head and side. It is simply a miracle that I am still alive, not to mention the lack of injuries. Attached are pictures taken at the scene by police as well as pictures of the damage, which hardly do it justice. In addition, there is a picture of me in the hospital less than 30 minutes after the wreck giving thumbs up to Honda.

A few additional notes, according to Mark: Witnesses stated that the truck that hit him was a silver late model Ford F-150 crew cab full of passengers. The truck continued on after the collision.
