    I hope you folks do a follow up on this story. I sure would like to know how fast the car was going, what the driver was trying to avoid or whatever was the cause of this (probably senseless accident). Hopefully, the driver will be okay.

    Hello, I was the driver of the suv, I don’t remember much, due to my concussion, but a man cut me off and made me swerve over, and I just could not keep control. When I rolled the car, my arm was pinned outside the drivers side window, and I was extracted out. I had a broken forearm, and my arm was torn apart down to bone starting from my shoulder all the way down my thumb. I had to have 6 surgeries, the worse one was the 2 skin graphs from which the skin was taken from both of my thighs. I’m currently back to work and have been going to therapy, and will be going for several months. I would just like to know why the man was in such a hurry, that he caused me all this pain. I hope where ever he was going was worth me losing the use of my arm for 6 weeks, not being able to work, not being able to see my son.. overall I have been very positive about everything, but this affected me life greatly. Thank you for your concern! Let me know if you would like to see pictures of my arm.
    Meagan
