Today on a MI 8 lane highway, I pulled out in front of someone. I didn't see a white cargo van coming my way, and the front part of our Lincoln was hit with tremendous force. Amber and I are fine. I should say, I'm VERY thankful Amber is fine, because if I would have pulled forward about two more feet, the impact would have been directly into the passenger's side, and I doubt she would still be with us. The people in the other vehicle are fine. Fortunately, both vehicles were older and of a larger size. As it was, most of the damage was done to the front part of our vehicle. The airbag exploded, and my door was jammed. The person who hit us, seemed to be of Arab descent... He came up and was hollering and pointing, and seemed very angry--- I guess he had reason to be. We apologized over and over again. His demeanor changed rather quickly. It shook us up quite badly, and we're starting to feel stiff and sore, but otherwise- we're just very grateful! I had asked Amber to drive when we left, she normally always does now. She said, "no" (for some reason). I'm so thankful that she wasn't driving. She has her permit, but will be eligible to get her license in a few weeks.
