smart versus a Ford F-150

I broke my wrist, probably from the airbag, what do whole lot better than the pickup truck, which according to me, the witness, and the police report, ran a red light. I just replaced mine with a near duplicate.

Hey propes,

WOW - looks as though the Tridion safety cell helped protect you from further injury. Hope your wrist heals quickly and you recover from that traumatic crash.

Take care,

Daniel

I'm glad you're OK, but sorry you broke your wrist and your smart was damaged.

Prompt full recovery!

Did you get the same combination w/s/red cloth? Same as mine.

The other guy was cited for running the red light, and I have pictures but I figure it's probably not cool to post them; especially since he rolled multiple times and there are already lawyers involved.

Sadly, I didn't get the red interior like I have before. Since the closest dealership is a couple hours away, I elected to get a used car. A white and silver exterior like I had before but the interior is black. It's also a 2008, but with more than 100,000 less miles than my old one.

This one also has no power steering, and I know that some people have argued that there's no difference between power steering and none on the fortwo, but you can definitely tell the difference when your dominant arm is banged up.
