I am only 59,. the people in the Lexus where going to a funeral for their daughter. The driver made a U turn in the middle of the 4 lane highway, and all I saw was a wall of metal. My 2003 C230 Mercedes T boned & flipped the Lexus and it turn over twice. The airbags saved my head, but my knee jammed and its very injured, I will get my next Mercedes with knee air bags. The CHP and Fire Dept were very nice and brought me ice and water. Emily Tincher

Emily- apologies for misstating your age. It's been corrected, and thank you for setting us straight. Here's hoping your knee heels quickly.
