My Accident happened on April 10, 2000 in Mesa, Arizona. An individual made an illegal left hand turn in front of me in an intersection. I was doing about 45 or so, and after hitting the truck midaxle I flew approx. 80-85 feet bouncing 3 times before finally stopping face down.
I had to be Air-Evac'ed to a trauma center in Scottsdale, AZ. I broke my left wrist, snapped my right arm in two(ripped threw my flesh and left bone on the road), lacerated both thighs, had internal bleeding and shattered my right knee. I now have titanium in both arms and right knee. 9 months and 10 surgeries later I am still recovering and doing physical therapy. I still have quite a way to go still and I will have to have my knee replaced within the next 10 years or so, but at least I'm still alive!
