It Saved My Life
By Chelsea P. on
1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C220 4dr Sedan
I got in a bad accident just a few days ago while in my 96 Mercedes c220. I was at a gas station waiting to turn left. While I was waiting to pull out a semi came by that had tractor rims. One came loose, because of an insecured load and also the driver didn't notice the suv in front of him get ready to turn right into the gas station. 7rims bolted together that weighed 1,000 lbs each struck the driverside of my car and caved it in. The rim weighed at least 7,000 lbs (not including the momentum added) that not only crushed my side of the car but also pushed it and lifted it a good 20 ft. I have no idea how I made it out of there but I thank god that I did. It saved me
Since I'm 16yrs old it was my first car I loved it but it did have many flaws. I'm just thankful it could stand up over 7,000lbs+ of CAT rims when I needed the most!
My family had to put in a lot of money into this car. The car was actually recalled in Germany because of so many flaws..I live in the Mid-West where the winters are freezing. This car does bad in the snow! The backwheel drive makes it hard to control at times. hard to control if you are
