Yesterday at about 5pm on highway 17 a few miles north of I95, a southbound minivan crossed over the median into northbound traffic a few cars in front of me, spun 180' backing into a guardrail and cross back, stopping in the median.

When the minivan stopped in the median (facing northbound), the lady driver was half in the passenger seat, half in the center console! She was ejected from her seat, probably when she crossed the median the first time.

As you'd expect, I stopped with a Carrier technician (I think the name Eric was on his jacket, but he froze at the sight of blood). The lady had a 4" head laceration from bouncing off the passenger side door, but was otherwise unhurt. Her diabetes, and blood thinners weren't helping matters much.

Abby got 911 on the horn and EMTs arrived in about 4 minutes, and whisked her and her award winning show dog away.

She would have been unhurt had she been wearing her seatbelt. It's entirely possible she would have retained control of the vehicle when it first crossed the median.

Do you buy a condom to look at it? No you buy it to fuck.
