40 mph was the max speed I was driving *straight*
before i started braking to turn...I wasn't pushing
the limits or anything (not purposely)...
It is conceivable that I traveling much faster
and am just in denial to myself, though I doubt
it...I remember everything in slow motion.
Re: airbags, I think it was just the sudden
impact of the curb that made the car think I was
being side-impacted or something, my passenger
told me he didn't touch the airbags at all, and
instead burnt himself off the hot gas released...
phil - my parents are killing me
