Jennifer was driving home from work last night... she's bruised but will be ok. Details of the crash... Car hydroplaned at approx 60-65mph on the bridge over the Manatee River on Interstate 75 in the far left of 3 lanes. Car fishtailed and swung left to hit the inside bridge barrier wall head on hard enough to deploy 2 airbags and then hydroplaned backwards across all 3 lanes of traffic coming to rest backwards in the right emergency lane. Engine still worked and car was moved to the nearest safe parking lot after being checked out by the fire department. Not sure on it's status pending insurance claim stuff.... but the car saved her life last night... twice at once... 6 inches or a foot higher on the center of gravity and I'm pretty sure the car would have gone over the railing to the river 70 feet below. She'll drive a smart for as long as I can get one for her.
