That really sucks. BTW I saw a S600 coupe in the paper recently. It may still be listed. I'm surprised it was a Ford Ranger and not some 85 year old lady in a Grand Marquis or big ass Buick which is usually the case here in Sarasota. I'm constantly amazed by some of the stupid stuff drivers do down here. They're usually either "neadlies" (nearly dead old people) or tourists who don't seem to realize that other drivers are not necessarily enthralled and need to slow down to gawk at the palm trees or the bay.

glad your ok, didnt like the pic of your injury though, looks a bit painfull, as did all the other pics of your ex MB!!

The insurance company lost around 55,000 to the case (Car and Medical) so far.. When I switched to another insurance company, they asked me.....the accident on 00/00/00 ....did your insurance have any loss? They also asked: Accidents (regardless of fault) in the last 5 years?

I look back at the ticket I was given for the accident and see how Florida State Troopers with very little knowlege, have the power to choose which driver was at fault and put there drivers licence at risk for 3-5 years. But when you asign a lawyer or two to the accident case that you know your not guilty of, some how the trooper becomes a little bitch and drops all charges...never being put on the stand and under oath! FIGHT YOUR TICKET!

Another MB, faithful to the end. I am terribly sorry, what a great loss! How has your knee recovered?

Best wishes,

Melissa

WOW, the big S class did exactly what they do, it really saved you. For that I feel glad, and vindicated in my choice to drive one of these.

If you are going to be in the mother of all accidents, this is the kind of car to be in. the ultimate reason to choose an S class.

Do you have another one yet?

Sorry for the pain and suffering. I guess dealing with crooked cop was last thing your desire at the time.
Do you have any knowledge about condition of Ford occupants?

The "ford occupant" was flown to Bayfront Trauma Center. He was on life support for 7 days and hospitalized for 29.

I wonder does two airbags on my E200 1994 still work well at now, after the dozen of years?

The best player always finishes at the last but two!
