Good to hear you're OK. Just make sure, and get looked at, if you feel any discomfort.
That sure is one tough van you drive.

DA-A-ANG! Good to hear you are reasonably OK. I bet you wake up with a bad headache tomorrow.

I'd say that van was "built Ford tough"!

I'm glad to hear that you and your passengers are OK Pat! That Truck definitely lost that confrontation! In spite of all, I hope that the other driver is OK too. If he was criminally impaired or negligent, I hope he gets what's due him also. I'm with the rest of these guys when they say you should keep aware of your condition as seemingly minor injuries can have lifelong consequences! Stay safe and be well!

Wow, that could have been a far less happy story. I'm going to say a prayer for the patient, you,your helper, and even the other driver tonight. Hope all feel OK in the morning.

Really glad they gave you a good, solid vehicle to drive... That's not the new one from a couple of weeks ago, is it?

I agree with Steve and several of the other posters, some problems show up several days or months after the accident. Just protect yourself, and for now I'm glad to know that you are OK.

That's a pretty tough van you drive. Doesn't look hurt near as bad as that PU. I hope all of you heal quickly without ongoing problems.

The van was a 2011 E350, and the truck was a 2008.

Bad thing about it, this is quipped with a wheel chair lift, and now we can't use it. We have 2 of these, 2 Chevy vans, 2 of these Ford vans made for stretchers, and 2 IH buses. We had this traded in for a better setup, and now that is in question.

It appears that a new bumper and a little rubbing compound and you'll be just fine. Praise God for his Grace!!!

I will have to talk to the Hosp Director about this. I have to write up my report on it this weekend. Since this involved a Service Connected Vet, they will be following this very closely.

The Vet was taken to a local hospital, and since he didn't have any insurance they had him pay before releasing him, he has to turn the bill over to the VA for reimbursement.

Hope the reimbursement process is quick for him. I'm surprised they couldn't make arraingements with the VA and not strap one of our Vets with a financially stressful situation.

I'm also hoping there is no lingering effects from the accident.

Well the VA hospital was 50 miles away, and the local hospital was closer. We only have an Outpateint Clinic in Tulsa, and they don't handle trauma. The VA tells everyone in an emergency go the the closest hospital. Since we were transporting him, we have to cover it.

I was told I did everything right, I got 3 witness statements, picture, the Police report and made sure the patient was taken care of.
