67 Basket Case Restorer
As some of you know, I own and drive a Peterbilt pulling an end dump gravel trailer. Yesterday morning a 16 year old girl with 2 passengers pulled out of a gas station driveway directly across my path in rain and I was unable to stop or avoid them. Luckily I was empty and only going about 35mph, but a Ford Escort against 30,000lbs wasn't good. The impact was a t-bone into the drivers side from the front door all the way to the back bumper. The driver's 13 year old sister was in the rear seat directly behind her and took the worst of it. They were all taken to a hospital and the 13 year old was said to have serious head trauma. I haven't been able to get any confirmed information on her condition, but I called the hospital last night and was told they had all been discharged...:confused. I don't know if that is good or if she was transferred to a different hospital for better treatment. I will call again today and try to get better info. I am just torn by what this family must be going thru with 2 of their children having been injured. All thoughts and prayers for their complete recovery are welcomed.
