Brey-Krause Saved my Life.

Yes, according to the emts my Brey-Krause bar literally saved my life last night as I was t-boned in my Porsche 968, the other driver was going over 60 when he hit me.*

I only have 3 broken ribs and bruised lungs, and don't look like i was in an accident.*

Phew Byron. that's a bit close.

Thank goodness you survived it, and thanks to the Brey Kraus.

You might be a bit sore for a while. good luck with your recovery. and good luck with the legal/insurance drama that goes with accident.

Good to hear the good news. Very sorry about the bad news. Looks like that was a great car.

Here's to a speedy recovery.

Damn Byron,

Glad you are not hurt any worse.

The 968 held up better than I thought it would have too.

Thanks everyone, not doubt that I will be sore, they did an ultrasound and showed me the damage. My right knee has a big bump under it. Been doing breaching treatments and exercises today, tried to stand, but was very painful and I was getting light headed. Yes, that 968 was a great car with a lot of good memories.

Holy Hell, glad you are OK. Seriously.

From the looks of it, guessing it was a lifted truck of some kind. Wheel isn't pushed in, but the body panels are.

Amen! Much better that the car got totaled instead of Byron.

Whoa! Glad you are okay, Sir. You should recover quickly, given your very young age and healthy lifestyle.
