    Another Audi gives it's life to save the driver (my nephew!)

    So here's what happened (and he walked away with a broken collar bone from the seat belat and stitches from metal scraps flying!) he's an aspiring snowboarder and travels back and forth to Mammoth alot. A week ago Friday night he was northbound on the 395 just outside of Ridgecrest. Two semi's (singlefile) are headed towards him, just as he is adjacent to the grill on the 1st one the 2nd one pulls out into his lane to pass the 1st one! Thankfully he made the right choice and tried to go down the middle (inbetween the 2 trucks) and not dump it off in the right shoulder. The 2nd semi drove OVER his A4! The axles sheared off the semi and it toatalled also. As you can see from the pics, he is lucky to be alive, lucky he was driving a safe car, lucky he made the right choice, lucky he did not have a passenger. As you can imagine I was shocked, but so damn thankful he was in that car and not some other! Thank you Audi!!!

    I'm figuring out how to post the pics, one min heh

    Wow, he is a very lucky guy to survive that period, let alone with very minor injuries, best wishes for him and your family.

    yep, when my brother came by (the day after) and showed me the first pic (he of course told me Chad was ok first) I felt very sick to my stomach!

    yes, the drivers stopped. yes, the lawyers have been called. The driver at fault actually tried to lie to police that he pulled out to pass behind another truck, ashole. Like he could've avoided one semi and then gotten run over by a second! Cops have my nephew's statement and it's been backed up by the other driver= only 2 trucks, not 3...thank goodness

    Glad he is ok, Julie. Yea, a little bit of a drop off there just North of Ridgecrest. Probably would have rolled it. He made a good choice. I don't know if I would have made the same. Good call.

    That is great that he is okay! Looking at that picture I am amazed that he survived.

    WOW.....definitely someone has other plans for him. Glad he made it out safely....thats a pretty crazy call he chose as well. Guess you would have had to be there to make the choice and looks like he made the right one.
