Why You Should Wear Your Seatbelt

About 5 days ago my cousin was involved in a head on collision with a Super Crew F-150 at 50 MPH. The driver of the F-150 said he fell a sleep at the wheel later told the police he had a sneeze attack and passed out.

She ended up with a compound fracture which means the bone was sticking out of her leg her boyfriend has some internal injury's and a perforated bowl he is still in ICU the F-150 drive had minor injuries.

but yea here are the pics

Was that a compound femur fracture? I don't care what anybody else says, that is the most painful, dangerous, and violent injury the human body can sustain.

Uhh lol I'm not sure but the compound fracture happened on my cousins Ankle she didn't realize it happened tell she pulled her pant leg up and saw it. Now her BF on the other hand from what i understand he was kinda sitting sideways when they hit each other and they think the seat belt buckle its self is what caused the puncture but im not real sure

I would think by looking at the picture of the inside. The driver would have been hurt worse

Didn't look so bad till you look at the front and inside.

Glad everyone is alive hope he gets better

Ive always been told its usually the person opposite of the impact area that is injured more severly then the person sitting in the area of impact.

I heard a girl break hers in rugby, from about 100feet away. Unmistakable. She was in shock by the time I ran over there.

I hope these folks make it back to 100% as soon as they can! Looks like they were tough just to survive that wreck.

wow. Glad they made it out and it wasn't worse than it was. I wish them both a full recovery.


On the bright side, that's one less S10 on the road now.
