without getting into too much detail, i let my friend drive my car and coming off and exit ramp, he lost control and 180'd into a cement pillar holding up the overpass.

i was riding in the passenger seat. the pillar hit me bang on and I think without the side air bags and Gods graces, i would be dead. all that happened to me was a chest contusion and a sore neck... other than that, i feel fine. i got out of the vehicle and walked away on my own power. thank God for the safety features in the V.

Don't know you at all, but glad you're still here... Go home & hug your family & enjoy the rest of your days... The next meal you ate probably never tasted so good & the air you breathed never seemed so sweet!

Wow, sucks to lose your car, but much better than losing your life! Glad you're ok! I'd forgive your friend too, but I wouldn't let him drive your new car!

Glad you're ok dude. I don't think you'll be letting anymore friends drive in the near future but if you are, please make sure they've attended some type of performance driving school.
