Was hit by a 1 Ton truck that went thru a stop sign at approx 60-80 km/h, then dragged me for 20 ft. Knocked me out for a bit and ended up with 5 rib fractures and a lung contusion. Cop and Tow truck guys said I was lucky and they were amazed at how well the Subu handled the impact.

I must say, thanks for saving my life subaru.

Looking at a 2010 Forester now.
Here are some pics.

That is crazy!

Sounds like you are a little banged up, but you are certainly lucky to be alive.

Good luck on your new shopping, and hopefully your insurance (and their insurance) are taking care of you well.

Wow what a nasty impact, it could have been a lot worse!

Good thing you're ok.

Dang. Looks like a rough ride! It's hard to believe that there's so little damage from that kind of impact.

Glad you're safe and hope you're on the mend.

Look at the front piller..almost not deformed. Hardly even pushed in..windshield is intact. Very impressive.

Thanks guys, yes could have been a lot worse. I'm quite lucky that it was hit where it was. Amazingly the compartment where my feet were wasn't crushed. The EMT people were amazed that I could easily move my legs, as they thought I would be needed to be cut out.

I just bought a 2010 forester, this time with side safety curtains, lol. I get it on Thurs. It will be the first black vehicle I've ever owned, I understand they are hard to keep clean, sigh.

You would think Subaru would gather a hand full of testimony like this for advertising. It only takes one accident like this to make a difference.
Good thing your ok

Blood spots on the airbags look gnarly!!

Get yourself a lawyer and make sure you get what's coming to you! Remember, They need to make you 'whole' again (or as close to that as possible)
