You and your children were traveling back from their school when you saw it: A large truck was heading toward you and was not slowing down. As that vehicle approached quickly, you looked for anywhere you could get out of the way, but there were no shoulders or areas where you could move out of the lane. As a result, you ended up in a head-on collision with the truck to put as much distance between your children and the vehicle as possible.
After the crash, your two youngest were fine. They were in safety seats, so they had been well-secured. Your older child was badly hurt, though, and you had life-threatening injuries. Today, you've both recovered somewhat, but you believe that you'll have many months or years of recovery ahead of you.
