    Default Ben crashed his car.

    Just got off the phone with him, wanted me to let everyone know he crashed his car, and he is OK.

    Hate to hear that, but I'm glad he's okay.

    Is he in the hospital or anything?

    You know something odd? My Wifes sister was rearended today as well. around 2pm...pulling into her driveway. Ruined her car sent the trunk to her back seat and shes in the ER, but shes fine... A van going 70mph wasn't able to stop in time...
    Really sad how this stuff happens. At least in both cases they are well.
    Hope Ben gets better.
    Still...think about it for a second how much we take for granted though....I mean it could have been fatal... you know what I mean?

    I knew there was something wrong! I've been trying to call him all week and his phone went right to voice mail. I also emailed him a few times.

    Thanks Larry for the info. I'm glad he is okay.

    How did you contact him?

    Ya know if that boy didn't have bad luck, he would have no luck at all. Geez!

    I'm pretty sure it's ben62670 as I still can't get a hold of him either by phone or email.

    ben62670's PM box has been full since Tuesday (at least). I've also sent 3 e-mails over the course of the past 5 days and called once (left a message), but haven't heard back from him.

    It's definitely Ben in GA as he and I had some pressing issue to take care of for him together and I've not heard from him since Monday and we were to keep in contact daily.
