You choose your level of risk every day in life. Choose wisely and be ready to go when your time comes.

We all make stupid mistakes, this guy is paying a pretty high price for one. He's lucky to be alive.

Why did God put him in the path of an oncoming truck in the first place? I think that's a sign God was trying to kill him. His aim was just off that day.

Misc Thankfully this young character is still alive and ultimately doing well, but beyond that it's hard for me to have much empathy for the dude. Read on and you'll see what I'm talking about.--Pete




I have empathy. One moment of inattention cost him 2 limbs. Haven't we all had a distracted moment when things could have gone bad, but luckily didn't?



He seems to have a great attitude and strong will to live.. good on ya kid!

Default probably not his first accident ?

I believe in wearing gear all the time, but nothing is gonna save you if you collide with anything head-on at highway speeds. He needed more caution but caution usually comes from living thru lesser accidents and reflecting later on what went wrong. I wish him well.
