Thank goodness for air bags!

We all know about air bags and hope we never need them but I for one am very thankful for them today. My 20 year old daughter had just bought her 2014 Ford Focus 3 weeks ago. Her Sales representative took the time to show her how to set up her Blue tooth with her cell phone and had told her if she was ever in an accident it would automatically call 911 for her. It did in fact call 911 before the dust settled and she had 7 air bags. I'm grateful for ever one of them! She and her sister were coming home after work during an ice storm and a car had stopped on a bridge and right in front of them they saw the car pull out and hit an on coming car and things went flying. They slowed but knew on an ice covered bridge they couldn't stop. They almost made it past when the spinning car struck them and shoved their car into the side of the bridge. A semi truck was next in line and he did an awesome job of sliding through the 3 car pile up with minimal damage (he shoved my daughter car further into the bridge) but made it through with out running anyone down. No one was seriously hurt and my daughters and one other person was transported to the hospital with lots of bruises and one broken arm. They both lost their eye glasses and the car is a total loss but we are all grateful for air bags today! We all know it could of been much worse.
