Crash Victim?

First, my sincere sympathies for any physical injuries or emotional distress you might have suffered. All the more so if a life was lost.

Videos of vehicle-into-building crashes often attract laughs or downright stupid comments on YouTube and other sites. But these events are no laughing matter. Whether you were struck by a vehicle, were driving the vehicle, or were a bystander or almost hit—no one knows better than you what the experience was like. The shock and fear can't adequately be explained to anyone who hasn't been through one of these crashes.

You're not alone. Many lives continue to be touched by this problem. I invite you to visit the Storefront Safety Council ( to learn more and to reach out about your experience.
