Default near death from brewing

whew, today i had the closest call in 10yrs to dying. there we were headed to bells in kalamazoo to pick up some grains. we were going west on I94 when a vehicle 2 cars up slammed his brakes trying to make an exit ramp causing everyone behind to do the same. when i hit mine i slewed to the left and ended up going down the left lane sideways with my wife in the passenger seat. the truck in front of me is getting bigger and bigger and i'm not slowing down that much then the back tires start to catch and were slowing down enough to miss the truck by a mere foot or so. then the front tires catch and start to slew us back to a front forward orientation when the semi that was behind us who had switched lanes to prevent from running us down clipped the left front of my car tearing off the front bumper assembly and scaring the living daylights out of me.


that's it thats all we are alive and well no bruises even just wifey has a tight back from tensing up and i need to find a front bumper set for a 95 pontiac grand prix. i also need to find a way to kalamazoo to pick up my grains for a stout.

Glad you're okay but I think it was driving related rather than brewing.

If you weren't too close you wouldn't of had to slam on.

I'm sorry about your car- but I'm so happy to hear that you two are ok. Now that you're home safe, have a beer (or three) to calm those nerves!

Glad to hear that you and SWMBO are alright. I'd go to the scrapyard for that bumper if your a DIYer.
