    WOW Best of luck on their recovery. Sounds like they were both really lucky, judging from the car on it's side. I'm old enough to remember actually riding in model A's My Dad had a flatbed pickup and for awhile an AA dump truck.

    The car survives almost a hundred years to be done in by a cell phone user.
    Just a guess.

    Sorry to hear this. Glad they both survived. Hoping for a speedy recovery. But I know that it’s not that simple as us old ppl don’t heal up as quick as we used to. My prayers are sent. Kim

    Dang Matt! That's awful. I stopped reading and said a prayer for all of y'all....and especially your parents before I even finished reading your post. I'm sure they will be in good hands with you and your brothers taking care of them. Sounds like your Mom is going to be hurting for a while. A handicap shower chair may be a big help for them if your brothers can round one up pretty quickly before they get home. Be prepared for the pain meds to stop your Mom up, which can cause her as much or worse pain if it happens. I'm so glad you and your brothers can be there for them. I wouldn't give the car a whole lot of thought until your folks are vastly improved.

    My older brother has rounded up a shower chair. I got to round up a cheap rental car for the week, or get a car service to bring me to their house and back to the airport. Kinda pointless to rent it all week and have it just sit there. Been there w pain meds before. The flip side is when I come back home here, my brothers will be helping tor 2 weeks before I have to hop a flight back.

    If it's not so far from the airport to their house, maybe just get an Uber to their place and then use their daily driver if you need to run out for anything. When your Mom can get off the high powered pain meds, the Tylenol and Ibuprofen liquigel capsules work better and quicker than the hard pills of the same thing. My wife has been recovering from Bunion surgery on her foot, and has been thru all the pain med trials and tribulations recently. I know you have a thousand things going thru your mind, and are probably pretty stressed over all of it, but I have no doubt that you will be of great help and comfort to them. Hang in there man....you got this!
