I'm glad that everyone is OK.

I really don't like the generic use of the term "accident" instead of collision. because "accident" implies that something is unavoidable.

When drivers don't maintain proper intervals, drive too fast and/or expect other drivers to properly operate their vehicles and signal their intentions, collisions under those conditions are inevitable, not "accidents".

To avoid collisions, expect every other driver on the road to be less skilled than you, and totally unpredictable. Expect that every other vehicle on the road has been poorly maintained and could fail with no warning. Expect that insane people are waiting to jump out in front of you to commit suicide by Element. Expect kids with rocks on overpasses to resent your having a nice shiny vehicle. Drive like you expect the worst to happen and be pleasantly surprised and amazed each time that you avoid an "accident".

I'm wondering what the crushable pillar behind the plastic looks like. You could have more damage than is showing on the outside.
