I find what happened to you highly disturbing; it really is a miracle that the outcome was not even worse.
I hope in the first instance that you make a good recovery from your injuries and that through the club it will prove possible to get your poor Ariel back on the road.
As for the chump that did this to you, well, I hope he gets prosecuted, but that won't alter what happened. It's rather a wasted opportunity that experiences like yours don't get publicised more. If they did, perhaps we'd all be more conscious of what we are doing when behind the wheel.
