The Death of a Friend

This video is on YouTube, posted to Facebook.  It is a really sad story about a 944 that was struck in the rear while sitting still at a traffic light and was violently struck in the back.  His narration is heart-breaking, but he credits the car with saving his butt – relatively uninjured for such a hard hit.  So sad. He worked on the car for five years to get it in such great shape, then…this.

Lots to learn from here.  He probably had no where to go, but the danger from behind is real, and distracted driving is also real.
