Three weeks ago I was hit by a driver who ran a stop sign. My car was totaled and my seat belt saved my life. Although my sternum was fractured, and I have many bumps and bruises, I am alive. The healing process will take months, and dealing with insurance companies is not my favorite past time, but I am thankful I am here to talk about the importance to always buckle up. Be aware and be safe on our busy roads and highways.
