I work in trauma and i hate seeing pics like this. I could care less about the idiot that ran from the police, but did they really need to post pics of the victim? Come on now....give the dude some privacy.

The Jeep held up very well considering the speed. I wonder if it had side airbags? Here's a little more news.

•CNN/WESH

"ORLANDO, Fla. - A car of burglary suspects led police on a 40 minute chase through the streets of Orlando Wednesday. It ended in a dramatic crash. The car smashed into the side of a Jeep at a busy intersection. Two other vehicles were also struck. A news helicopter was recording the scene and showed the driver of the suspects' car get out and fall on the ground. The suspects both had serious leg injuries from the crash but are expected to survive.

The driver of the Jeep is expected to recover. Wesh.com reports six people in all suffered injuries. One person was a trauma alert. A second refused treatment. The remaining four were transported to a hospital. Police say it all started when two men allegedly kicked down the door of a home intending to steal. Instead, they were spooked by the homeowner. Their identities have not been released. Wesh.com also reports that two dogs were seen running from the scene. They were recovered and reunited with their owners."

Anyone else notice the animals running from the jeep just after it was hit?

Wish the people in the white car a poor recovery, speedy trial, and a lengthy sentence.

I didn't initially, but the article mentioned them. After reading your post I went back and saw the video again. Amazing that they weren't injured. Luckily they were found nearby.

Hope everybody recovers ... except the thieves.

Recently lost my boss when he got T-boned by a red light runner. He didn't have side curtain airbags. Probably the most dangerous hit for car occupants.

I was thinking the same thing if it had the side airbags. I had to special order to get mine with them. Some think the side airbags or any for that matter are dangerous in themselves. There was just a recent study on how many lives can be saved and reduced injuries that can be attributed to the side bags. The results showed a significant reduction in injuries. IMO a very worthwhile option. To each his own though. Either way it probably helped quite a bit to the jeep occupants that it is up high compared to the criminals vehicle.

That first link about the teenage girl - I was trained by my Dad to have a completely different response to that situation. ALWAYS keep a gun handy in the house, and with me when outside by myself (lived in the countryside). Always be situationally aware, and if someone advances on you in spite of ample warning, shoot to stop. Period. Dad was away in the field working most of the time, and my stepmom would be teaching at school, so I had to fend for myself until they got home.
