Thank you for providing this info. As I witnessed the aftermath of this accident on my way to my office this morning, it seemed impossible that there were survivors... I am sending up prayers on their behalf. God bless...

Thank God. I too saw the car and did not think anyone could have survived. I'm glad he did.
