    Post pictures of bad wrecks hear.

    These are pictures of my Dad's 1992 Ford Ranger that was totaled while I was driving it when I was 16. Another car lost control and roled over my it while I was driving.

    I was traped in the truck while it was on fire. Luckily a guy close by had a fire extingquisher.

    Wife was stopped in front of the house to turn left into our driveway.
    Hit from behind and pushed into the on coming lane. Wheels were straight mind you.
    Then T boned by a neighbor in his brand new f-150 1800miles. Totaled it.
    66 days in the hosp 7 surgeries to date at least one more to come.
    What a year!!!
    They believe that the woman that hit her was distracted by here dog in the car w/ her.
    You see it all the time the dogs laying across peoples arms, nose up to the window ect...
    Straight road good visibility wide shoulders..

    So PLEASE secure your plowing buddies.
    We have harnesses that actually hook right into the seat belt for our pests... I mean pets.

    Before i was born (around 1988) my uncle was driving a new chevy S10 home from night classes at college and fell asleep at the wheel on the highway. He went off the road at a bend and down an enbankment. He wasn't wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the truck with minimal injuries. Turned out that saved his life because the trucks engine ended up touching the back of the cab. He probably would have been crushed if he stayed in the truck.

    My dad had a picture of it. I'll see if he still has it.

    You never know weather the seat belt will save you or end you. In my wreck it definatly saved me.
