Why did he crash? Usually it's because of speed. Yes, he is lucky, but clearly there was speed with that kind of impact and damage. It's a wake up call for him at 16. Now his parents get to pay higher insurance premiums and know that they have a high risk kid who doesn't exercize good judgment behind the wheel.

I'm so glad he's ok. I drove by just after it happened, I think. Lots of people stopped to help - I was afraid it might be a teenager. My heart goes out to him and to his family - I hope he makes a speedy recovery.
