This happened yesterday and the deceased was a family friend. It’s just starting to sink in now for me. As comfortable as we get with our cars we still need to remember that they are dangerous and can kill. And remember to keep it on the track, this was a residential area on a beautiful sunny day so I imagine speed and/or hot dogging it was a factor here.

Crashes like these always give me pause about driving the older vehicles that I do. Would he have survived in a newer car? Maybe, maybe not, but I’m sure he would have stood a much better chance.

Stay safe out there.
